My wife got some orchids for Mothers day from her Grandma, and they have been sitting here in the house tempting me for long enough. Well, this evening I had a little spare time and decided to shoot them.
Here's how I shot them: I used a single 75watt flourescent (equal to 300 watts on a regular bulb) bare bulb light to camera left. The flowers were about 5 feet from a black backdrop. I shot it with a 70-200 f/2.8 lens zoomed out to 200mm, at f/11 and an exposure of 1 second. I then imported it into lightroom, turned it to a black and white, then used greyscale mix to get the right look. I then added a little vignette, sharpened, and adjusted contrast.
It is one of my personal favorites, and I hope you like it too.
