    Default American Yellowwood...


    A friend from FB introduced me to the work of Irving Penn. His book of flowers has become a classic. He produced a myriad of images in many different genres. In my own small way, I salute Irving Penn and his photographic genius. ~~Peg

    That is so beautiful. I love the high key look of this.

    Very nice Peg! I like this style of shot. Works well on head shot portraits too.

    Thank you Monnie. Linda, you're making me blush. It's nice to know you see improvement in my photography. Paul, I'm posting a link that explains "high key" better than I can. Hope it gives you some ideas. http://www.idigitalphoto.com/high-key-photography/
    Thank you Fred and Jim. I'll try it on some portrait shots Jim.
    I shot this one against a featureless white/gray sky. It was a stormy day without wind for once. The white on white gave me the idea to try an Irving Penn type of shot. Thank you all for commenting. It always helps to get some feedback. ~~Peg

    Peg,

    Great shot and work! Would make for a nice multiple group hanging of other flowers shot and processed the same way.

    That's a good idea Greg. I can picture that; it'd be fun to put it together. Thanks for commenting. ~~Peg

    Thanks Karin. I'm going to try Greg's suggestion and see how a group of three turns out. ~~Peg
