Madison Indiana Photography

” Calla Lily Flame “

After posting all the shots of the fire at the Courthouse in Madison Indiana, I thought I might deviate  from the journalistic side of photography a bit and head back over to the artisitc side. But I still thought I might keep a fire flavor to it and post this shot of a  group of Calla Lilies that I think resemble a flame, don’t know if you all think they rsemble a flame as well but  at least thats what I will call them.

I blew this one up to about 30×40 and it really looked nice, it was a bear getting that feat acomplished but was definitely worth it.  Calla Lilies really are a beautiful subject too shoot and almost always look great printed and displayed, thay have become one of my favorite subjects and I always enjoy shooting them.

  7. This is one of the more dramatic B/W’s I’ve seen in a long time. The tones really bring out the details and intensity, and yes, I think it is rather like a flame. This is really a great piece of art featuring the calla lilies.

  10. Continuing with the fire theme…you could take even more artist license and color the petals red, orange and yellow. Just a thought.
