“I’ve been photographing Oregon’s spring flowers for years—and my picture of peonies was a 1st-place Your Best Shot winner in June 2009. These are calla lilies, which I noticed one day on my postal route and returned later with my husband to photograph. We held an off-camera flash in a 16-inch softbox, and used a cardboard reflector for fill light.” (www.oregonmacro.com)
