White Fuji Mum

White Fuji Mum, January 1st, 2010

My wife’s birthday is January 1st. She had mentioned how much she liked this flower, which was sitting in an arrangement on our breakfast table, during morning coffee. I had been thinking about what to start the dailies with; running through compositions, thinking what and where I might photograph. I don’t often attempt still life work, but the combination of a birthday, a beautiful flower, and morning sun made my decision easy. I set up a simple black cloth background, arranged the flower, and set up my camera. This shot was just about lifesize on my 4×5. It prints easily on Ilford warmtone¬† and has wonderful soft tones. The morning sunlight was perfect.

Details: Polaroid Tominon 105mm,¬† f45,¬† 18s, Delta 100 4×5.
