Did I just rock a bedazzled backdrop? Because… it seems like… that… just… happened.

SIG this is so fantastically gorgeous!! Perfect shot of the flower and the sparkles are so enchanting, well done!
Thank you so very much! It took a bit more experimenting than I anticipated to set this one up, but (minus the mess), that’s a big part of the fun, I guess!
Thank you very much!
That really is glamorous.
Sparkle-glam-ish… or… something like that.
Mmmmm! Sparkles! 😀
I took a hint from your ‘Big Black Bag’ series for this one, S.E.
The sparkles are from a bag Annabelle was given a while back. It’s covered in sequence, and I’d been wondering what might happen if I tried to use it as some kind of backdrop.
Aw, thanks, Lynn!
Great job It’s a perfect yellow world 🙂
Thank you, sir! I was hoping the bright color would be interesting here!
That really came out nice!
How very kind of you to say! Thank you!
The clarity of the yellow flower against the
magical backdrop adds a bewitching feel to this one 🙂
I don’t know where you get your ideas from, but keep
it up as these offerings are absolutely stunning 🙂
You never fail to please SIG 🙂
You are always far too kind, Andro!
Thank you so very much!
Hahaha… I’m not sure where these ideas come from, either… sometimes I think it’s best I don’t know! Could be kind of scary!
Wherever they do spring from you
always excel my wickedly fine friend 🙂 🙂
You are far too kind, sir! As always!
Have a great evening SIG 🙂
Many thanks, Andro! The same to you, sir!
You rocked it indeed! Lovely! Have a great week!
Aw, thanks, Robyn! Very much!
I hope you have a wonderful week as well!
Thank you very much, Nancy!
The last thing I bedazzled was my jeans jacket in junior high. I have a feeling that it’s coming back in style though. At least I keep hoping. 🙂
Maybe you’re on the leading edge of a return trend.
Hahaha… It’s a very good thing that background (a bag of my wife’s that’s covered in sequins) had already been bedazzled for me.
Something tells me that, if I had to operate some kind of bedazzling device, there would be an incident.
I don’t know how many ‘bedazzling injuries’ typically show-up in urgent care…
That would have been me.
Oh, so pretty and glammy!! I love the sparkles in the background. It takes me somewhere else, Robert…to a good place.
Why, thank you, Amy! Very much!
The background is a bag of my wife’s – the front of it is covered in sequins – and I’d been wanting to see what would happened if I used it for a backdrop for quite some time now. 🙂
Beautiful. Hey, I recognized this quote, too, SIG. You’ve got to step up your game.
It took me like three hours to finish the shading on that flower’s upper lip.
Thank you very much, Peg!
Yet another movie I don’t get
That movie is pretty much me in High School.
If I’d had ‘dance skills’.
Hope you don’t still mumble
*mumble mumble mumble*
OMG Bearman you don’t get Napoleon Dynamite? Gosh!!!
Now I feel like a friggin idiot… sheeze!
I get that it SUCKED
Hahaha… are we talking about the movie, or my high school experience here, Bearman?! Because I might be inclined to agree with you.
That flower is clearly on the way up!
Hahaha… half-way between the planet’s surface and Transporter Room Three…
Thank you very, very much!
Bedazzled, bejeweled and beautiful!
How very kind of you to say!
Thank you, thank you and thank you!!!
I’m thinking there needs to be some big, hollywood type music to go along with it! Glamerous, NO Doubt!!
Thank you so much!
Beautiful shot Robert.
Many thanks, my friend!
Great use of complimentary colors and symetry Bob 🙂
Thank you very much, Martin (just between you and me I might have ‘tweeked’ the background color(s) just a bit to make that happen)! 😉
It glitters and it’s gold! Love that little pout on the petal!
Thank you so very much, Ms. K! I’m particularly happy you noticed the petal (I think that’s one of my favorite parts, too)!
You photographer/artists have a lot of tricks up your sleeves! I like the way this turned out.
These things usually do work better when I have my rabbit. 😉
Thank you very much, Patti!
Is the flower dead now? Short but sweet 🙂
Believe it or not this one is still going! I have no idea how that works (I usually kill potted plants in less time than this)!
Thank you so very much!
The lighting on this is perfect. And the backdrop is actually really nice (I’m thinking starry night), but I’ll only really be impressed if you actually used a Bedazzler to make it.
Aw, thanks, U.M! The lighting was a bit tricky… I used a lamp to illuminate the flower… and then ‘painted’ more light onto the backdrop (which is one of my wife’s sparkly bags, so I can’t take any credit for running a bedazzler, here, I guess) to get various sequins to glow (while trying to avoid bouncing too much off strange parts of the flower (or the lens)!
That’s beautiful! 😀
Thank you very much, Cristina!
Floral star-burst. 🙂
I like the sound of that! Thank you very, very much, sir!
you have just discovered a new star! what a brilliant click. thanks for sharing.
Does this make me a member of the flower paparazzi?! Thank you very much!
Stunningly stunning. The background contrasts so well with the yellow flower.
