Posted by Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 17 July 2009 in Plant & Nature.

Stargezer Lily from my garden. Taken indoors with natural light from window. Overexposed on purpose. Texture Pink Floralby pareeerica added.

I am finding Asiatic Lilies difficult to photograph! Does anyone have some tips?

I like this overexposed treatment. Guess we just keep experimenting. This has a very lovely painterly quality. I recently posted one that was almost underexposed.....

I really like the convincing way you have styled this . . bold but successful in projecting the flower.

This is very beautiful Anita. I love the high key nature and I am always a sucker for well done added textures. You should pursue this type of imagery more.
