Yellow Walking Iris, by Siew Bee Lim

This image of a Yellow Walking Iris (Trimezia Steyermakii) was taken at the Botanic Gardens on a fine day. I took the image in the morning. The flower was fresh and the sunlight was not too strong. The tone presents the flower well in the image. Yellow walking iris is quite easily found in the neighborhood garden and parks. The plant is about half a meter tall.

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.
