Passion for Flowers

A passion for flower photography is of course one of my ruling passions. What better way to show it than by photographing this Passiflora (“passion flower”) from a vine outside our living room window. The image is a single exposure shot on a light box, processed through Adobe Camera Raw multiple times for enhanced dynamic range. The upper version is an LAB inversion of the original photo, which is shown at the bottom with its white background.

The biggest challenge with this image was getting it to stay upright on the light box, which I did with the help of some clear Museum Gel.
