Low Key

Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is all about Low Key Photography where almost everything except for the subject is black. It makes the viewer focus on the subject.

The Anthurium is also known as Painted Tongue, Flamingo Flower (Flamingo Lily) or Tail Flower.  The red, heart-shaped flower of Anthuriums is really a spathe or a waxy, modified leaf flaring out from the base of a fleshy spike (spadix) where the tiny real flowers grow.

Isolating the flower and removing the colour emphasises the shape of the spathe.

    • It is more challenging Sue, but tends to make you consider the subject and light more carefully. Of course this was taken in colour and converted. Some photos convert well, others don’t but it is fun to experiment.
