I love the dark background, it really makes this lily stand out. I love flowers!

i like the idea.. just wish the white "popped" a little more.. the shadows falling across the back hurt it a bit.. maybe a little bit higher exposure will give you the brilliant white you are going for... but i do love these types of shots.. so i will be looking forward to it!

Afternoon Sunlight? Well ok maybe so but I keep looking at these Flower Pics of yours now and I keep forgetting it's Winter and freezing outside LOL.

Julies, wonderful. when you say drape is it a special kind of drape. How does one obtain a complete black background like you have done.

Kind regards.

this black background is just a large piece of black felt i got from a local craft store. very inexpensive. just make sure there is a little distance between subject and background when shooting.
