flower - without picking it
I set my tripod up in the dirt, down low, in front of the flower. Put the camera on timer, then held a sheet of white cardboard behind the flower for a flat backdrop. Rotated the image 45 degrees, and cropped it into a square! Made sure to line up the center of the flower with the top right grid point on a 3x3 photo grid.
It was getting dark outside. I wanted the least amount of noise, so I managed to get this on 100 ISO, though it was a bit motion-blurry, hence I resized to 512 x 512 on this shot, so the blurriness wasn't visible.
