A day at the studio

It was a tiring day under the spotlights - for the carnations, lilies and chrysanthemums!  Our star performers were the models for photography students training at Shashikant Photography


For us, it was a fascinating day, to see what a backdrop and different lighting can do to an ikebana arrangement, as a work of art.

For each of these arrangements, the students would take almost half an hour, to organise the lighting, change the backdrop, shoot from different angles.  So we saw lights that hang overhead, spotlights that go on the backdrop, side lights, bottom lights, etc etc!

Unfortunately, I only had my camera phone with me, and these are all the pictures I could muster!

Sorry about this...it just will not straighten!

The agency has a six month photography programme, and flower photography is just one of the themes they cover.  They also have a lovely Flower series, stock photos that you can purchase from them.
