“Looking Inside”

“Looking Inside

“Most of the things that give life its depth, meaning, and value are impervious to science.”
― Rachel Naomi Remen

I know, this gets done a lot, but I could not resist giving it a try with a couple of my tulips, which are now past their prime. It does give a nice view on the structures inside the blossom and was fairly simple to light, which is really what I was after; trying to capture some of the soft reflection within the petals.

I also wanted to keep depth of field adjusted to show just the centre structures clearly and have the background fade slightly. This was a bit more challenging, given how close the lens was, and I did not want to use advanced techniques like focus stacking to get it all sharp.
