Shooting into the Light

The most interesting details can come alive in some subjects when shooting into the light. I took this image of these flowers in a vase directly in front of a window. Shooting from behind and maybe at a bit of a an angle to the light source, the translucent petals showed their delicate veining so beautifully.

Blowing out the window in order to get adequate exposure on the flowers was no problem. I didn't want any of that in the image to distract from the subject.

I much preferred this image in black and white so I converted it from colour in Lightroom.

I shot at a speed of 1/50 with an aperture of f/2.8. My ISO was 100 and I was using my 60 mm macro lens.
