Marcella Koss Redux

Another photo session with this beautiful orchid, Blc. Marcella Koss "Pink Marvel". This time I used a shoot-through umbrella, a single speedlight, and a couple of white reflectors, the latter to bring light back into the shadows. The result is a very soft, dreamy light that gently caresses the flower. I am pleased with the result, which dramatically contrasts the more documentarian style of the January 2018 photograph.

Please let me know your opinions and thoughts about this photograph by filling in the email or comment boxes. Do you prefer it to the previous one?

Thank you for stopping by.

Best wishes,
