Photographer's Note

This is the first photo of a series that I plan on posting. Last semester, I took an introductory photo class (B&W). This was our first assignment, titled 'Creative Visualization'.

We weren't supposed to try anything special; just take a picture, develop the film, make a contact sheet and then make a print from one of the negatives.

I used a zoom lens at about 160mm to get a nice minimum DOF.

I like the shot, but I wish it were sharper. I also wish I would have burned the leaf in the upper right but I hadn't learned that technique yet. When I scanned these prints, I tried to retain the image that I turned in for the assignment and only make some subtle improvements.

The plant is a Plumeria the flowers are white with yellow centers.
