72 - The Orchid Thief
The wife bought some orchids today for the kitchen and I stole them (temporarily) to use as a subject for today's photo. I don't take many flower pictures mainly because there are so many photographers out there who specialize on them and they're really good. But this did give me a chance to practice on lighting a bit. This one was a little tricky because I was shooting white flowers on a white background and that can make it tough to get separation. I lit this one with a shoot-through umbrella on the flowers (camera-left from above) and a bare speedlight on the background which is a white reflector.
