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,
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.
