Experiments with Flowers, Nov 2009

These photos are the start of a series that will combine different types of lighting with flowers in different states of freshness. I guess it is going to be a sort of 'wilting under the spotlight' kind of thing.
Above: white rose, taken with a horizontal back-light (flash).
Below: white lilly, taken with a horizontal back-light (flash) and another flash on the grey background.
