Mum's Orchid

Last week my Dad bought some orchids for my Mum, they look lovely so I thought I'd bring them into the studio and take a few pictures and see what I got,

I set up my lights, using a 3 light set up and took a few images, then thought about putting in a fourth light on the background to add some dimension to the orchid.

 Here is the flower with the 3 light set up.

and here it is with the four light set up.

Which picture do you prefer?

Comment below!


  1. I prefer the second one. The fourth light brings out the colours, textures & shadows and looks more natural.

    1. thanks Maj!
      that's just the feeling I was looking to create!
