    Default Backlit


    I had bought my wife some Gerber daisies and Well after noticing their hefty stems and having my studio lights set up I had some fun
    I put the stem in the umbrella holder of one light and then put another in front of the flower and fired away. These are my two best.

    Nice idea. I especially like the 2nd one. I like the gradient colors in the petals.

    #2 for me because you can see the whole flower.
    The colours and light are beautiful.

    Lovely. I can see this one as a large poster in a teenage girls room. ~~Peg

    Goes to show, you don't need a fancy studio to make great shots.

    Very nice, fluorescent-looking images. Thanks for the set up. I'll definitely have to try this !! I agree with you about the "fun" aspect in experimenting and finding an surprisingly pleasing result as you did.
