It was my wife’s birthday on the weekend, and her cousin brought a bouquet of gerberas (thanks Lindsay!) So I decided to try taking a photograph inspired by an image I saw on Flickr a year or so ago. I used just enough light on the flower to be able to make the background appear black after dialing in the settings in manual mode.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
