Blooming in my garden: Bearded iris ‘Poem of Ecstasy’

17 05 2015

With tall flowers like this bearded iris stalk, which blooms in my front garden, my background would be parked cars, kids on bikes or asphalt, so I substitute a background of either white or black foam core board to create my “plant portrait.” In this case, I chose the black as my background for more drama. I didn’t have to use my tri-grip diffuser this morning because the light was diffused already, creating an almost studio-lighting quality.
