Zinnia Elegans, by Siew Bee Lim

This is an image of Zinnia elegans, known as youth-and-age, common zinnia or elegant zinnia. It was taken near a neighborhood park on one cloudy day. I took the image in the early morning. A quick shower had just passed. The flower was fresh and the sunlight not strong. The tone presents the flower well in the image. Same flowers in purples and pinks were also present.

Photographer: Siew Bee Lim (Singapore) Registered
Born in 1965 in Singapore, photography was one of the old hobbies of Siew Bee Lim. Now she would like to learn it formally via Light & Composition platform as she believes it’s not too late. Since primary school she is not good in drawing; she doesn’t have artistic hand that some of her classmates have. Nonetheless, she likes reading since young, and would try to appreciate Chinese paintings. Few years after she started working as a Programmer, she took up photography as a hobby. She attended a short course which included a session in the darkroom. In those days, good photographs were dependent on good darkroom skills. It was unlikely that she spent much time in the darkroom. Hence the hobby didn’t last long then. She believes that the present learning experience has a longer way to go.
