Lily in a Green Vase

Lily in a Green Vase

Lily in a Green Vase, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

Flowers in our house often do double duty, and this lily is no exception. Purchased as part of an arrangement of flowers to help cheer up a stuck-on-bedrest Phyllis, I decided the lily was so beautiful that it had to be photographed.

I used a black velvet cloth for back drop and sunlight to front light the flower. I placed a Lowel tungsten spot light covered with a diffuser to the rear right of the flower to add the highlights.

[Nikon D300, Sigma 50mm f/2.8 macro lens (75mm in 35mm terms), 1/2 second at f/32 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
