Photo365 - 3 - B&W Challenge Rose

Today's entry for my Photo365 project was inspired by the ePHOTOzine Black & White group who've set there weekly B&W challenge with the theme flowers. I decided to dismantle the Christmas flower display that was wilted after a week of intense heat from central heating and fireplace. And pulled out a dried rose.
I placed it on the garage floor which makes a great background and illuminated with a home made ringlight.
I used a Pentax ist D which has been converted to infrared and here's the result after a bit of post processing in Lightroom.

Quote: home made ringlight

This year (after Rachel leaves) I am hoping to set up a small 'studio' in a corner of her room - I'd be interested to know how you made a ringlight! I've noticed images of bugs using this kind of light always look more natural (especially bugs with shiny wings!). Smile

The ring light is a ceiling light that is sold in B&Q with a metal back plate that is a dome shaped ceiling light with a circular fluorescent tube. I cut a hole in the metal plate and removed the dome shaped shade. It's a bit electrically unsafe but works wonders! More details here DIY Ringflash
