“Nine Roses”

“Nine Roses”

“I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday sweet and fragrant, between its leaves.”
― L.M. Montgomery

Though a few have seen better days, these roses still offered me an opportunity to continue experimenting with lighting on these studio shots. I thought the white might pose a challenge but they turned out beautifully, still retaining the soft pink/cream colour perfectly.

I’m finding it’s a matter of controlling the light and keeping it just bright enough to light the subject while keeping the background dark. In this case I also included the vase for a little more interest.
