....In thy light shall we see light...Psalms 36: 9

Experimented in the day time with a cut tulip in a vase on south window sill, with a black mat board behind the flower. I set a small flash light underneath the flower and braced it against the vase to shine the rays upward. I also played around with minus exposure compensation..There certainly are different ways and angles to use a flash light...and it is fun. The little camera I used for this experiment is a back up, reasonably priced that I bought on sale for less than $200 last year for when I go on hikes .....Please view in light-box for best results!

I got the idea of the flashlight and black mat for the background by looking at Troy Hickok's back lit cut tulip on his site where he used a flashlight from behind...It inspired me to do some experiments of my own.

    Thank you for the comments...Yes, you are so right Frank....We learn from each other and it was fun to try something different than the usual way of photographing a flower.
