White Rose

Out of all the flowers I have tried to photograph, roses are certainly the most interesting. Probably because of the density of the petals making it easier to photograph and the fact that these petals create a natural eye trail towards the center.

My girlfriend had a bouquet of flowers and I thought I would take a shot of some of them at close up. Actually I did everything against the book when shooting this one, it was handheld, inside with a halogen spotlight from the ceiling shining in, in short none of the stuff that I should have done per Scott Kelby’s book (shooting on a cloudy day right after the rain, using a tripod if doing close-up etc).  But I loved how the center of the rose glowed as if it was back-lit.

It’s a single image (not HDR) with a slight retouch in Lightroom but almost nothing.
