This gerbera has turned it's back on traditional ideas about flower photography - like full frontal views. And on the ideas of people who claim that taking photographs of flowers is the easiest thing there is. (Fortunately not all the flowers I photograph are that obstinate - I do like a frontal or sideways view now and then...)
I shot this gerbera with my wife's 300D, using a tube light, a halogen light shining through a white umbrella, and a tripod.
Cleaned up the image in PS, adjusted saturation and light, and added a border.
The extra white space on the left is intentional - I didnt want to have the flower dead center this time.
