Madison Indiana Photography

“Calla Lily”

Playing around with some Calla Lilies this week and came up with this shot and a few others, I have finally got the urge to shoot again after a long winter and basketball season, I forgot how much I enjoyed it.

I am hoping to get a break in the weather, it is up to almost 50 today and tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer, but alas we are expecting a couple snow or rain systems to push thru this week and bring us back to winter.  But I am feeling better because it won’t be long before I am outside and shooting again, so I should be able to post alot more images than I have lately, thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

  6. I carried fake Calla Lilies when I was trying on my wedding gown about nine years ago. Your shot looks so much brighter and lively compared to the ones I took at the studio. Great job.

  8. Oh that is brilliant. I actually was wandering in a florist shop today thinking of your shots and then … could I? nah… and here you are with this absolutely stunning photograph and here I am going. Okay no I can’t. 🙂 I have to say (cuz I tend to be a loud mouth) This photo seems more balanced than you calla lilies in the past. Weighted properly brilliant. I think your just “just barely” lighting here make it look very sexy. In a few words; I love it.

  10. I wonder…did you just drop them into a vase or did you arrange them to some extent? They just seem to flow from one flower to the next.

    It’s another stunning shot, Bernie.

  19. Great comp Bernie. It’s quite something when you present a composition that you know it wouldn’t look right any other way.

  35. This is so beautiful! It reminds me of the flowers I gave my mother the day before she died, several years ago. It made me smile and cry at the same time because she adored them. May I use this picture as a background image?
