Again playing with different lighting, I was trying to light the flower and to create the shadow that looked more like a tree shadow. The light has to be bright enough and high enough but not too high or too bright to make the shadow fall apart. Of course, I had to rig a wire to hold the flower and that had to be erased. I then took this into Topaz Adjust to give the photo an overall light salmon colored tinge.
The starkness of the single flower and the shadow is what drew me to try to photograph this. The petals give the light and airy feel in the shadow with the different layers of light bleeding through.
It’s raining (again) and what better than to play with my camera and determine what kind of lighting to get my desired effects.
