BPG 52 Week Challenge: Darkness

Continuing the weekly challenges for the Brighton Photographers Group on Facebook. The rules are simple, one image per theme (unless otherwise stated) and ideally shot the same week as the theme (ie no submitting from archives).

This subject had me stumped for a while. I finally settled on photographing a decorative bloom in a little vase in darkness, with some of the detail picked out with light. I blended three exposures in Photoshop, as I wanted the vase to be dark, the leaves slightly lighter and the bloom itself to be the lightest (I used a torch to ‘paint’ it with light).

Shot on Fuji X100T.
