Inside a Tulip

Inside a Tulip

It's been a long time since I've posted a straight flower shot. The last one was in 2008, actually. But recently I picked up some new lighting gear and have been testing it on different things in the office.

Those of you who follow me on twitter will have seen a few of the shots I've made in the last few days. Well, the ones that follow and actually click on the links. There's even a giant, 2560 x1440 desktop wallpaper for you to use if you wish.

I hit this poor tulip with three speedlights. One to render the background pure white, one to reflect off of a wall and the ceiling and one through an umbrella from above as the main. I didn't run the photo through Photoshop, only made some minor tweaks in Aperture. The missing petals that allow this view inside the flower fell off as this bunch of tulips is kind of on its last legs.

I think at the end of the day, they will end up as compost. So it goes.

My other photographs of flowers can be found in the gallery. But, I have to warn you, most are fairly old and and I kind of think some of them are crap.
