Calla Lily

By Andysnapper
I had to stay in on Friday afternoon to wait for a delivery so I decided to do some still life shots. I'd bought a couple of these lovely Calla Lillies from a local florists and set them up by my dining room window which in the late morning early afternoon has some nice soft light.

I used my Mamiya C330f and a roll of Fomapan 100 black and white film. I had seen some shots by Robert Mapplethorpe of Calla Lillies and wanted to try something similar, just simply lit and shot flowers really. I'm actually quite pleased how they came out and before anyone says it, yes, I did shoot some colour versions which I may put up later in the week. Grin But the black and white are better.

Cheers

Andy

I love the tones in this Andy, I'm very pleased to see what camera you used too, I had one of those in the eighties. What did you use to scan it?

Thanks for the comment and award, much appreciated. I used an Epson V500 to scan this, it seems to do a reasonable job.
