Oriental Lilies

Mum was going to give these flowers to a friend for her Birthday, but before they “disappeared” I had a quick photo shoot because I’d never seen them in real life before or had the chance to photograph them.

The shot was captured with a Canon 450D set at f/16, 1/125 second, ISO-100, W/B = Sunny and -0.3 EV in Aperture Priority Mode.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.
