Flower Photography Lit from Within, A Couple of Hours of Fun

A day of boredom caused me to play with my camera gear and see if I could do something different. Here are the resulting floral photographs.
Below are some flower images I took using a technique I have documented over on Experimental Digital Photography of using portable flash and a wireless or wired connection to your camera and masking (see the link at the end of the article).

The resulting images, I feel, have some real potential and I will be doing more experimentation with it. I’ll let the images do most of the talking for themselves.

When the lighting comes up through the green base the color of the light is affected.

Sometimes you will get a real hotspot if the part of the flower that touches the hole in the mask is visible to the camera

    Stellar images! How did you come up with that light inside the flower?
