A Great Big Photo of a Little Yellow Flower

Little yellow flower

Lately I’ve been intrigued with macro photography. I’ve never been much of a flower photographer, but when I saw these little yellow flowers along the edge of the yard (yes, I was mowing) I thought they’d make a good subject. They’re really quite small – the entire flower is a little smaller than a quarter. I’ve got no idea what they are, I just liked them.

The photo setup I’ve been using is pretty simple. The flower is resting on a piece of frosted Plexiglas that is lit from below. Then, I have a large softbox just above the flower to light the foreground. Then, it’s just a matter of balancing the two lights to get the right exposure from each.
