The last rose of summer

The Last Rose of Summer is a poem written in 1805 by Irish poet Thomas Moore.

“You look like the last rose of summer” was one of my Irish mother’s favorite sayings. Miss you, Mom!

Tech Tips

A rose bud cutting from the landscaping at The Beacon of Groveton was photographed against a pure white background (255, 255, 255) using the “Meet Your Neighbours” (MYN) technique.

I used my Fujifilm X-T1 digital camera and an 18-55mm zoom lens, set for 55mm. One external flash was used to backlight the background (a piece of translucent white plastic) and another flash was used as a key light on the subject. Check the EXIF/IPTC info for the photograph for complete details regarding photo gear and camera settings.
