I took this photograph to show a different perspective to capturing flowers. I photographed the tulip close-up and up from below the flower, excluding the top of the flower but retaining the essential elements. Since this was a studio shot, I was able to light with flash and also create a simple white background with a softbox to further isolate the subject.
