After reading how to photograph flowers in Scott Kelby’s The Digital Photography Book (pages 30, 31), I decided to try my hand with some tulips which my daughter had delivered earlier this week. Around here, it’s going to be another month before any tulips will be blooming outside.
While I didn’t have any black fabric handy, I instead made use of my house coat. Had trouble getting it flat so there’s still some light there. I bought a white poster board for the white background picture. I used a nearby window for the main light source and a white reflector to fill in the shadows. I used Apple’s Aperture 2 to process the final images.
