I saw some rocks at the dollar store right next to the flowers, I really liked the contrast so I bought the rocks (the flower was fake)

At home I layed the rocks out on a floor tile (that resembled a black and white marble also bought at dollar store) misted them with some water took a trip out to the garden pulled a flower and set up a 2 light set up. the first light is camera left about 60* above the subject diffused with my collapsible reflector/diffuser. the other is a light camera right snooted to focus on the flower.


# Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 10/150 second = 1/15 second = 0.06667 second
# Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 360/100 = F3.6
# ISO Speed Ratings = 100
# Original Date/Time = 2008:04:19 09:00:33
# Shutter Speed Value (APEX) = 400/100
Shutter Speed (Exposure Time) = 1/16 second
# Aperture Value (APEX) = 370/100
Aperture = F3.61
# Flash = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
# Focal Length = 620/100 mm = 6.2 mm
# Image Width = 2400 pixels
# Image Height = 3600 pixels
#PP = Cropped in photoshop

I also copied the jpg, saved as a psd and made the flower its own layer so I can change the color of that.

Critiquing is always welcome.
