Black-Eyed Susan


Continuing with my series of shots from my back yard here is a image I captured of a Black-Eyed Susan that I photographed one evening not too long ago. I was able to isolate the blooms against a new privacy fence my neighbors up the street constructed, the fence was made out of a warm wood and  with  the setting sun i couldn’t have asked for a better background for my subject.

I like to keep my backgrounds as soft and clutter free as possible and with the distance between the fence and my subject it worked out perfectly. The late evening light was just an added bonus to my final image the warmth in the flower and the soft warm evening light played off each other nicely and helped contribute to this strong image.

Never been a huge fan of Black-Eyed Susan’s but I felt this image was the best one of this lovely perennial that I have ever attempted. It has been a great year for flowers here in Madison Indiana, the weather has been perfect and with all the great subjects I am getting some really nice work for my portfolio, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my photography!!

    I am a sucker for yellow and these are just stunningly beautiful in the way you photographed them, Bernie.

    Hmmm…you know with Autumn approaching, I have some interesting stuff in my backyard. I will get on my safari outfit and head out the backdoor this weekend.
