Today there was a craft class at our local library making paper flowers. We used crepe and tissue papers with wire to make colourful peonies and poppies. I came home and was thinking of photographing these to practice my still life photography.
Here are a couple of articles for lighting still life:
These were taken on my window sill with only window light. Since they were on the sill, they are back lit. I hope the flowers are looking pretty. To make these, you cut 5-6 rectangles of the paper and fold them like you would to make a Japanese fan. Then you cut the ends in a curve to make petals and twist the centre with the wire. Your pretty peony or poppy is done! You can use any colour to make any flowers you like!
