Maybe because they are my Mom’s favorite flower, or maybe because you rarely find blue and yellow combined in nature, but I love shooting an Iris. I think a photograph of a flower, especially an Iris should capture the soft texture, the incredible detail in their petals, and their vibrant color. These guys really do pack a powerful photographic punch.

This was shot with a Canon 20D, using a the Canon 500 Macro lens (it screws onto your existing zoom). Set-up couldn’t have been simpler- used a north facing window in my kitchen, put the flower in a kids cup on a kids chair so the light was pretty even and soft across it. Snap, Snap, Snap. Enjoy!
