These are a few of my flower shots on black, making the flower the star of the show. During the pandemic I began to shoot stills in a home studio, totally for enjoyment. Although these shots are digital, I retired from any professional work long before digital came about.

I used to love to shoot with Fuji Velvia film and I understand that there is a plug in or stand-alone that mimics Velvia.
If you know what that might be I would certainly appreciate the info.

I cannot physically get around as much as the old days, so I think still Lifes might be the thing to satisfy my photography Jones.

Best to you all,

Bob

On Black is an unforgiving background you handle it well. Very nice set

Thank you,

I totally understand. When I shot these, it was with black foam core background. As you realize, foam core is reflective and as a result, with a couple of the shots I had to clone out the highlights on the background. They were minimal but nevertheless very distracting from the image. I have since purchased a good quality velvet background which is totally nonreflective...problem solved.

Are you named after the camera or is the camera named after you?
