Studio Shoot : Final Images
4. Pink Rose
I think this is a really successful final image. I didn’t use a flash for the photo because i used a spotlight aimed from the right side onto the face of the flower head which highlighted the pink petals. Because i did not use flash the background is also lighter, and i think the pale blue background and the pink petals also work really well together. The shade of the background also looks a bit like the sky, almost like the photo was taken outdoors. I like the depth of field of the image and how you can really see the details and textures on the petals and the single flower against a plain background technique i wanted to use that Mapplethorpe used in his work.
