Iris Flower

How to take a picture of an iris flower (or any flower)

Seemingly a monster, it  might look  like one up close,  an iris is a contradiction in many ways. I chose to see  beauty in this flower, but most definitely an edgy one.

So, to accomplish my vision, I went against the most common advice in flower photography, as one of the first words you would normally read is “defuse.”  In this case I say: CONTRAST; every shot is lit from underneath and against a dark background.
My vision, my rules.  Final result: a beautiful iris flower with attitude.
