Valentine Rose


On Valentine's Day of 2014, I bought some roses for Xenedette.

I rarely shoot flowers or macro images, so I have shot an image combining both.

I wanted some dramatic side lighting, and I wanted to highlight water droplets on the rich red petals, so I used my trusty LED headlamp in a darkened room, manually holding it during a ten-second exposure.
