This is the second Orchid picture from the shoot two weeks ago. I have been meaning to edit the other two shots but life has a way to taking control sometimes.
This shot is framed closer focusing on the second flower. I used the Cyanotype toning again but this time I converted the image to black and white using a slightly different method.
I first converted the colour image to colour infrared and then converted to black and white using the channel mixer. This gave more detail to the step as it moved from a green colour to more yellow/orange. Once converted to black and white all the little details pop out of the stem.
I know some people don’t like the closeness of the crop but for this image i think it really works.
