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.
