Loading real life preview
A large pink Oriental Lily blossom destined for floral arrangements. This beautiful flower blossom reaches almost eight inches from the front tip of to its rear. Displaying long filaments holding anthers heavily laden with bright red pollen, this lily is truly striking. It is one of the most popular flowers imported to the United States. Shooting this colorful red lily against a black background in my studio allowed me to concentrate on the color and the structure of this most wonderful flower. I think of my flower photographs not just as still life’s, but also as figure studies and portraits of the flowers.
