Study in Curves - Sepia

Ok, this is the last set in my study of the lily curves. For now, anyway. I really wanted to do a set in b&w but it just didn't feel right. I added the sepia tone and then I was happy. :) This is the same flower as the first set on Monday, just pulled back a little.

By the way, the setup for these (and for most of my flower shots) is all done on one of my kitchen chairs, in front of the slider, with a black board leaning against the back of the chair for a background. It can be iffy since Spike likes to push on the board and he's knocked flowers over before. I also have to watch how the light hits the board because it can turn it grey. Which isn't bad unless it's uneven across the background. I also have a blue board and both boards can be flipped over to white. I usually end up shooting black though.

All taken with my D200, 70-180 macro, and tripod @100 ISO.
1- 180mm 1/3 sec @ F20
2 - 135mm 1/2.5 sec @ F22
3 - 135mm 1/1.3 sec @ F22
4 - 135mm 1/2.5 sec @ F22

Jannie So Spike doesn't eat lilys for some reason? I don't see any kitty bite marks in your shots. Kinda weird!
Jannie · 2007-04-12: 01:57
vollenda There were some bite marks in one of them but for the most part, he left them alone. I guess they weren't as tasty as the leaves. He won't get the chance again since I gave the plant to my grandfather!
