Happy Mother’s Day

Today is Mothering Sunday, when the world pauses to remember and thank all the mothers for their ceaseless love and untiring devotion to their children. I am therefore dedicating today’s thread to all mothers out there.

Anyway, this bunch of flowers was given to my wife by all of us. But we would like to share this with all our readers who are mothers out there.

And to give it a bit of a photographic perspective, I thought I would show what it looks like to have one and two flash system lighting the flowers. Both were off the camera, and does make a significant difference to the overall look of the flowers. I did use the flash bounced off the walls to make it more diffused.

Anyway, thank you to all the mothers out there. Keep doing the great work you are doing. And in the words of Sir Winston Churchill: ‘Never give up. Never, never give up. Never, never, never give up.’ Your work is appreciated, and if not now, it will be in the end.
