Mum Floating in Crystal by Charissa Lansing

July 2024 - Mum Floating in Crystal

About the Image(s)

This is another attempt at photographing a flower floating in a crystal bowl. I chose to process this in B&W to emphasize the patterns of the white flower petals and those of the crystal bowl. Green flannel fabric was used for the original background.

Camera specs: Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a 100mm macro lens (set to 1/13 sec, F/10, ISO 200) mounted on a tripod. I look forward to any suggestions. Thanks!

Charissa - I liked last month's image - quite similar. BUT this mono is really THE BEST. The lack of color lets my mind process the textures much easier. The contrasts are wonderful. Also, I appreciate the perfect focus on all parts of the flower, and also in the glass. That's not an easy task. The reflections on the fluted bowl lead the eye back into the subject flower. And even the background texture is just enough. Great image.   Posted: 07/08/2024 09:41:16
