Lone Tulip by WobblyBobblyChris Lone Tulip by WobblyBobblyChris
Reading an old photography magazine this morning, I came across an article about Robert Mapplethorpe's flower studies. I decided to try and emulate his style. I would've liked to use Lillies, but as the supermarkets of Spennymoor aren't quite that sophisticated yet, I had to use some tulips instead. This is one of a series, so check my gallery for more . . . .

A nice simple one. You can just about see the card getting a bit lighter towards the right hand side, where the light was coming from.

This was done with all natural light from a north facing window, using a 1.5x1.5m polystyrene board as a nice, lightwight handheld 'waftaboutable' reflector.

No. I don't give Valentine cards to close female friends. It would give the wrong impression, would't it?
