“Pink Blush – Part II”

“Pink Blush - Part II”

“The truth is that everyday and everyone is different. We just like to think that they aren’t.” 
― Anthony T. Hincks

As promised, yesterday’s flower, with a light background. Keep in mind, this is the exact same shot, with the same settings and lighting. The only difference is that I removed the black velvet background that I use for my studio shots, revealing the white card-stock panel that holds it up in my portable setup.

I still prefer the black backdrop, as I feel it makes the image more dramatic, but the light background has its appeal too.

It’s very interesting, on several levels, how this works. What I’m looking at is so dramatically altered by the surroundings. Something to consider?

  1. I thought I would like the dark background much better, but I really like this one too. You have a wonderful talent to make things look beautiful.

  2. Hi Ed,
    The flower shots are very beautiful. God gave you a talent, and you are using it to the best of your ability.
    All the best.


  3. It’s amazing how the pink doesn’t look as muted in the photos. I like both backgrounds though. They each add their own elements of interest.
