Calla Lily | Still Life

Calla lilies are an exciting flower to photograph for still life. They provide an assortment of things to focus upon, such as texture, form and depth. And if done with the right lighting and background, they make for dramatic black and white images.

I find it best to photograph against a darker backdrops (image below is with charcoal) to give the calla Lily the opportunity to pop within the image. I also rotate my lighting between 30 to 120 degrees to help create highlights and shadows within the flower, thus creating depth.
