Jane, I'm pretty sure the background was a piece of dark green card. It appears black because the flower is brightly lit by the sun and a reflector, and because it is so close up with very small depth of field. It might be that I switched to black card for this shot, but its unlikely.

Very nice curves in this flower. I like the simple composition and the complexity of the flower.

update on the background, at certain angles on this LCD monitor, the background does look very dark green rather than black, so I'm sure that was it.

Thanks everyone who commented.

Hi Keith, just looking at this photo again the thing that strikes me is the bright bold colours, i noticed here you used Provia film and on other shots on your folio you have used velvia and astia, which is your fav film and why? The reason i am asking is i am trying to decide on a film that i can use on a regular basis to get to know it well and can't decide between provia which i REALLY like and velvia although the colours are maybe a little punchy for me, but astia looks quite nice, maybe a slightly warmer film than provia, since you have worked with both i would be interested in your views, i want to try some flower shots.

sorry to have bugged you with this here but i can't find your email addy.

thanks Keith.

Apologies for late reply.
The short answer is, I started with Provia 100, but now use mainly Astia, and sometimes Velvia 50 or Provia 400.
Astia for natural tones, and Velvia 50 for something brighter, or if the light is subdued and I want to bring out the colour in a plant. I am also trying Velvia 50 at ISO 40 as some people recommend. Then Provia 400 for outdoors work handheld.
I'll try and email something more detailed.
