Flowers on Black

I photographed these flowers just now on black seamless as a demonstration of a bracketed sequence for low-key HDR photography from my Maine Media flower photography workshop.

  1. Wow, that’s just wonderful. Hard to believe that’s a photography. Very well done.

  2. What a great image. Is this technique outlined in any of your books or do I follow the high key technique only going in the opposite direction. Or do I still overexpose?

  3. Bill, this is a low-key HDR process, so it is like the high-key layer stack for transparency on the light box except (as you suggest) going in the opposite direction. I don’t have access to my books right now as I am in Maine (the photo was created as part of a demo for my Flower Photography workshop at Maine Media in Rockport) but I am pretty sure this technique is covered in Photographing Flowers, one of my books from Focal Press. Best wishes, Harold
