Almond Blossoms Under Studio Lights

Every year I go out and photograph the almond bloom, as you can see in these posts.

This year, I decided to try something a bit different. Instead of shooting the flowers under natural light, I took some lights in the field with me and set them up to capture the flowers under studio-like lighting.

Here are some of the results:

These images were mostly shot in full daylight. However, setting the lights to a high enough power essentially eliminated the ambient light, leaving the strobes I brought as the only light source.

And finally, when it was getting dark, I set up the lights to light an entire tree for a fun and unusual effect.


  1. Good stuff Tony! The results are fantastic!

    1. Thanks Eric! I really like them. I wish I'd taken the time to do more.
