WHITE AND LIGHT STUDIES

The beautiful white orchid I bought last month is still going strong. Kinda. How strong? I'm not sure. It still has a full array of petals but they are losing mass having become thinner in the past week.

Yesterday I played with this thinness by applying light using only the sun coming in the window.






Using just the 50mm lens with the UV filter removed I added  close up lenses of +1 and +2.

Handheld using a full apple box for support for my elbow. Everything was shot in shutter priority so I could make sure camera shake was at a minimum.
