White Japanese Sweet Pea

p.1 #1 · White Japanese Sweet Pea


I'm thinking of starting a series of flower photos similar to my other series only this time with white backgrounds. A little more troublesome, to be sure, but maybe it's worth it. I found this cute little flower at the store today and since it was white, it was doubly difficult to shoot with a white background. If you all like it, I may continue with other flowers in B & W. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks! I hope you like it!

Happy New Year to all!!

nah!
that is my reaction; I guess I just like high contrast Black & White, and the way you mastered it.
sorry, but regards, anyway, tom

Well, I think it's a real challenge to shoot flowers with a white BG.
I like this one a lot, Endre so please keep on posting.
Happy New Year!

Thanks for the input, Tom. Unfortunately, I've run out of flowers to shoot and so to do a whole new series with white backgrounds is a way of tapping a whole new genre. However, I cut this flower off the white background and replaced it with a black one - just for you. Maybe you'll like it better.

Happy New Year!

Thank you, Chris. Doing any kind of white background is difficult so I'll keep at it. I'm glad you like this.

Happy New Year to you, too!

I like it...a lot. I've shot quite a few flowers on white, albeit in color, and didn't find it that difficult with a couple of well placed strobes, and enough separation between the BG and the subject for proper exposure of each. I look forward to seeing what you come up with! This is an excellent start!

Both are very nice, but I am partial of the white on black. Great either way!

Thanks, Greg! I always appreciate hearing from you. I'm so glad you like this. Yeah, it's not that hard to shoot a white background, it's just that I am lazy to have to pull out and set up strobes. Still, I wanted to have an excuse to do more flower shots and since I have exhausted them on black, the next step is white.

I hope you and your family all enjoyed the Holidays and are looking forward to a great 2014!

Happy New year!

Endre

Thanks, Ryan, I appreciate your comment - all the way from Japan, no less. I'm really glad you like both of them. I like the black background, too, but after having posted almost 200 flowers done that way, I ran out of what I could get our of my garden and at the flower stores nearby so I need to come up with something else. As I told tom, this one is the same photo but I was able to cut out the white background and replace it with black, which is not the way I usually did them.

Have a wonderful New Year!

The original white on white is a very well captured image. Totally works for me, and I can see it framed on a wall. Nicely done.

Endre,
More simply wonderful images. After looking at both versions for some time I have to say the white backgrouground works much better on the subject IMHO.
The white bg really brings out more of the subtle high key tones and detail in the flower.
It is also a nice refreshing take on your subjects. I am sure you could make all of you flower image look brilliant with this high key look. Soon others will follow your style here...
