“Grape Hyacinth”

“Grape Hyacinth”

“There are just two directions in life, the one which is safe but boring, and the other which is delicate but exciting. Now ask yourself, which path will you go?”
― Joe Mari Fadrigalan

I’m toying with the white background this week but not sure how much I like it. It’s a bit of a creative risk, as I have been enjoying the black background photographs I’ve been doing  so much. I also don’t have a good white backdrop, so relying on a roll of drafting paper I have anding and fighting with the background texture.

The lighting and everything else seems to work, but I’d appreciate any feedback.

  1. Agree with comment re. white making it pop! Quite nice!! Great work!!

  2. Like the others who commented,I really like the white background. There is a brightness to the image that I really like and I am curious to see if a black background would change my impression.
