I tried different frames and effects but it portrays what I wanted without. My intention was the get the centre of the flower close to a thirds intersection. Crop tightly to focus attention and in a limited area left give the impression the petals were like floating silk. OMG those who know me will know this is the talk of a sleep deprived man lol
Tri-pod mounted, narrow aperture of f/20 on a timer of 2 seconds to prevent any movement, although an electronic or cable operation control would do. Two constant light sources and a silver reflector from above to make use of any reflective light. White balance on camera set to flash (but you must concentrate on correct white balance} very slight adjustment to levels and colour curves in PS. Oh shot against blue background.
Honest feed back always appreciated as I am hitting a wall. Wish I had listened more in art class.
