52 Frames ~ Extreme Contrast 01/03/2020

This weeks assignment was Extreme Contrast, with extra kudos for studio lighting. I decided to do a rose, as they are good shapes for contrast. I first tried on a dead one,

send me dead flowers in the morning

but that particular rose was a yellowy colour and didn’t convert that well to B&W I thought, so I tried again tonight on a white alive one, and this is the one I went with as I like all the curves and shadow shapes.

My ‘studio’ was the kitchen hob and blacksplash and I used an angle poised lamp for the lighting. Shot with my Fuji XT2 with the 80mm 1 :2.8 macro lens and a tripod. Processed in Silver FX Pro to make the most of the shadows.


  1. I didn’t get this post, and it shows here that I am following.
    That’s a big WordPress GRRRR!!!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I don’t think it’s wordpress Pete. These are not blog posts as such, they are projects. They don’t show up in the reader and I don’t think they are in notifications either. Only a couple of people have found them, but you can see them if you got to my actual page in the ‘portfolio section at the top. Also they are in the menu. But don’t worry about it as I’m just doing these for myself, so am not worried if no-one ever sees them!
