Persephone's Portfolio: Green Zinnia

I love zinnias'  Mexican fiesta colors but my favorite are the green ones. It's such a fresh color.
I generally shoot flowers inside by window light.  Outside there's too much wind!  The best light is from two windows at 90 degrees from each other, like in a corner.  Or you can use white paper/foamcoare/whatever to reflect some light into the shadows.  Compositionally the curving leaf both echoes the flower and frames it.
