Black Iris

Pin It

These two photos were taken as an exercise in lighting.  I stepped behind the flower, which was growing very near to a large clematis, and shot into bright sunlight.

I kind of like the washed out, over-exposed look of the background ferns and plants in contrast to the deep purple-black of the foreground iris petals, along with the bright light coming through and illuminating the veins of those petals further away from the camera.
