Iris season is well underway at the Hideaway. Two years ago Judy transferred some iris from Illinois to Brentwood so that today there 12 varieties blooming, a pittance compared to the number of daylilies we have. Here's one taken on the dining room table with the white shade closed, providing a perfect high key backdrop. This setting could be used for other subjects. Ah, some new things to try! Nevertheless, this photo shows just one way of photographing an iris without color. This variety is completely dark which probably accents the effect.
