Out of the Dark

PS-VJJS-140720-HDR-002A

I have been working on different techniques for capturing flowers outdoors in daylight but without the distracting background. This Orchid was shot hanging from a tree and in deep shade. It may look like it was shot with flash but what I did was underexpose by 2 stops then brought out the highlights in Lightroom. I will be trying three methods in the future. Blending multiple exposures, Underexposing, and flash to see which one give the most pleasing results. With that said you may be seeing more Orchids and flowers in the future. This beautiful Orchid is not something that comes from nothing but a creation from divine mind as so are we.
