Day #2477

Day #2477Title: Fading Passion
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Strobist: Yongnuo YN-14EX Macro Ring Flash from above, each side @ 1/8
Notes: Something a bit more creative today. A few weeks ago, after our excellent Macro workshop at GNPC with John Humphreys, I bought a Microfleur for Microwave drying and pressing flowers. Today I finally got the chance to use it in anger – my garden doesn’t have many flowers in it at this time of year, but I found a solitary Passion Flower clinging onto the arch above my gate and thought it would make a good sacrifice for the sake of art. Having photographed it on textured paper with the macro ring flash, I then added another texture in post production, from an image which I took in August for that very purpose. I’m really pleased with how it’s all worked out. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #32 – Dried Out.
