Day 189: Rays

After all that noir, I thought I’d do a little color. Today’s shot is of a sunflower. I really wanted the light to illuminate the disc florets, so I cut off the stem and stripped some of the green back away down to the fleshy white portion just under the florets. I set my flash on the ground and put the flower directly on top of it. I liked the end result, though I’d hoped for more even light on the pedals.
