Daffodil Ghost

It may be a little early in the year for a daffodil shot, but this one – from the Archives – has a particularly fond place in my collection.

Why?  Because of how dexterous I had to be in order to take it.

I was looking for a new perspective on the ubiquitous springtime “daffodil” shot, and this is what I came up with.

The backlighting on is all thanks to the sun.

I took this shot, outside in the middle of nowhere, holding the flower up to the sunlight with one hand, camera awkwardly grasped in the other, all the while leaning backwards as far as I could without breaking my back.

For anyone know knows how heavy DSLR cameras can be, hopefully you’ll appreciate the #photographobatics that I went through to get this image.

Now, I am not telling you all of this to get some kind of recognition of my efforts, as there are many other photographers out here that push themselves a lot hardly than I do!  I am telling you this little behind the scenes snippet because sometimes even the simplest of images has a complex set up behind it, something that the viewer of the photo should never really even think about.

You never can tell exactly what the photographer went through to get the image you see.
