Orchid in the dark

IMG_8179-2-1The weather today is really unpleasant. Windy and rainy and cold. So no chance to get out much. Not that I had the energy for a walk really as I had a migraine yesterday so today I’m kind of delicate and rather drained. I thought I’d have a go at getting a shot of my orchid against a black background, and as I have a black sofa, that was what I used. Turned out though that the sofa was reflecting all the light in the room, so in the end I got the focus right with the light on, then switched it off and took the photo on a long exposure. I like the effect 🙂
