Happy new year!

Happy new year to all my friends and fans! The 2017 is the year of the rooster in the chinese astrological calendar. In my picture a #wagashi (a soft sweet rice cake for the #teaceremony,#chanoyu) shaped like an egg or a snow ball with the face of a rooster on it. I used a laquered plate with red finishing and gold decorations. Photo © Flavio Gallozzi - All rights reserved.

Yellow on white

I love yellow tulips, even when the leaves turns yellow, the flowers aren't so fresh, but they are real flowers and this is nature of things to decay and eventually die. This is a studio picture but I didn't use studio lighting, I used two small portable flash, the main side light is bounced in an umbrella, and the second is directly aimed at the back-drop standing behind the vase.

Yellow on black

For this picture I used small USB led lights, to have many spot lights effect, adjusted the white balance, lens Micro 105 mm. at f 2.8.
