Caged Flowers

This is a little session in light painting, again with Julz. You can see the tracks of the wand reflected in the bulb. I love the backdrop in these shots, it’s really lovely.

I find it a little cold. It’s a nice picture, but it’s cold and lacking something. I took another shot and converted to a warm black and white and I find this one much more appealing. The conversion to mono has removed the bright contrast in all of the colour tones – the white background, the timber base, the yellow flower.

Finally, we turned on the edison light and I took three shots at different exposures to create this warm and golden HDR.

By using HDR, we’re able to get all the detail, while also keeping the shape of the bulb filament.

Oh, and here’s our rose again:

      Thanks! Yes, we took those three shots and then I used the merge function in Lightroom for the HDR.

  2. It’s the stray petals I particularly love, but I’m fascinated by the whole process.

      Thanks. That was Julz’s idea to add the petals and blueberries.

    Nice. The 3rd one appeals most because of its warmth.

    I like the warmth, not sure you need the flower at all and I really don’t like the red. I’d like to see this with just the random petals and the berries. An interesting process.

    Now tell me, is that wallpaper in the background? I like THAT a lot!
