Orange Lilies on Black by Charles Bartolotta

July 2024 - Orange Lilies on Black

About the Image(s)

This image of three orange daylilies from our garden was taken with window light from
the left and a silver foil reflector on the right. The bottle wa painted with flat black paint
as was the plastic pedestal. All items are on a sheet of black glass and the background
was hand-painted by my granddaughter. A lot of the powder (pollen?) from the flowers
dropped onto the glass which required a lot of cleanup in Photoshop. The image did not
require a lot of processing: a little exposure, sharpening, and Aurora HDR at default
settings to give it a bit more “snap”.

beautiful image. I would be picky and remove the white dots on the back round.   Posted: 07/08/2024 09:34:18
