The image is of the humble Shasta Daisy picked from a neighbors’ garden. I am very much a novice hobby photographer and fairly new to Macro having only had my lens a couple of months. I enjoy trying to give my images a more creative feel rather than producing just a record of the subject. I am still experimenting with different styles whilst I am learning but can see that I will try more white on white as I love the elegant simplicity and gently calmness that this style conveys to me.
This photo was taken indoors on a white table top against a white wall. I used natural light from a large window to the side facing the flower. I also used a flash on camera with a home made diffuser directing light down from above .
