Calla Lilies



I have been under the weather the last few weeks with one of those sinus things that is going around. I have been to the doctor a couple of times and am starting to feel better. I have been itching to get out and shoot all week, but decided I really needed to rest this weekend. I was however going a little stir crazy tonight. I turned to one of my favorite subjects... Calla Lilies. It required no real effort as it was a one light setup against a dark background so i spent perhaps half an hour shooting these beautiful flowers just looking at their wonderful forms and delicate flower. This satisfied my creative urges for today so I can go back to resting. Perhaps tomorrow I will paint a bit.

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

Keep Makin' Art!

Lovely photos! One of the things I like best about Calla Lilies is how sculptural they are. A very inviting and satisfying subject.

Hi Karen! Thanks! I was pretty happy with these last night, but headed back to the studio (my kitchen in this case) armed with what I learned last night and went to town. I'll be posting those B&Ws tonight. They are really something I think. Yes sculptural would be the right word. There form really reveals itself in B&W.
