    Paper? Wow! I love this. Someone told me once to hang a paper towel over a lamp to diffuse the light. Maybe it’s the same or similar effect.

  • Hi, thanks for your comments. I think your idea is a little different from mine. The ‘set up’ (really it was pretty informal!) was: sun→window→flowers→paper<—camera!
