Shadows are a fun tool to use in photographing roses. They help add depth to the layers of petals and mood to the photos themselves.
These are Quicksand roses. When the buds are closed, they appear beige with a light greenish tint on the tips of the outer petals. When the buds open, the roses are shaded from almost-white at the outer edges to a beigish-mauve in the center. They are large, many-petalled roses – and unlike many florists roses, are fragrant when they open. So they are really a pleasure.
