Sunday Flowers

I needed something to shoot tonight, so I grabbed a couple of flowers out of the bunch I got for my wife the other day and set up a couple of lights and a white seamless backdrop.

This first shot used two lights, one camera right with a 1/4 CTO gel.  The second was gelled blue and pointed at the background.

Canon EOS 6D - EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
1/160 - f/14 - ISO 160 - 100 mm

This one used the same lights and gels, this time with both lights aimed at the flower.  I like the touch of blue on the petals.

I added a third light here, pointing at the flower from behind with no gel.  The front lights were both gelled with 1/4 CTO.

Same setup as the previous image, minus the backlight.  Converted in LR4 with adjustments made to individual color channels.

Back to the three light setup for this one.
