Rainbow Tulips.

I am going through a bit of a floral phase at the moment. Not long after my fun with Lilies, Sunflowers and Gerbera came a couple of shoots with Tulips. These ones were labeled “Rainbow Tulips”, presumably as they were in many different colours. Now you could be thinking that I have an arrangement with a high-class florist but you would be wrong, these ones came from ASDA (for any American readers – Walmart own ASDA). On this occasion (the first of two) I decided to arrange them in a variety of patterns with a variety of backgrounds – I have a selection of A2 card in different colours. I used natural light with reflectors, indeed the sun was quite bright in my little studio so I had to make judicious use of the blinds to prevent harsh shadows. Camera on a sturdy tripod, lock up the mirror and slow exposures at between f11 and f16 – well the flowers were not going anywhere!. Enjoy…..

Of course, I had to have a fiddle about in Nik Colour Efex Pro 4 and/or Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 to finish them off. I’ll hopefully be able to show you the other ones soon – once I have processed them through Lightroom.
