Backlit Tulip

March 7, 2011

This photograph is the result of me experimenting with lighting. For Valentine’s Day I’d bought Michelle some flowers (of course!), and, the following weekend I decided to try to create an interesting photograph with the lovely tulips that were now beginning to open. I tried shining my trusty LED snakelight into the tulip to get the photo but that didn’t work well. I tried photographing the inside of the tulip, but that didn’t look great. After much playing about I placed the light behind the tulip, and placed a black card behind it. This seemed to work perfectly, at least, I think so. No photoshopping (or lightrooming as it is now) other than to clean up a couple of spots.

Have a great week…
