Again I go along with the group's theme of flower(s) for today's daily. Honestly I'm not a flower person but as luck would have it my daughter was craving some fruit so we went down to the local Fresh & Easy and on the way out one of the employees gave us some flowers. Talk about luck huh?
I wanted to do something simple for today's shot so I placed the flower in a glass and lit it with a 430EX in a shoot through umbrella. I pointed the umbrella down and kept the distance close. I noticed though that the backside looked a bit dead so I placed a 580EX II in another shoot through umbrella close and right behind the flower.
For good measure I used the black cover of the umbrella to cover up the side that faced the wall to prevent any spill as I was lighting the wall with a gridded 550EX.
So here is my daily for today.... a flower.
