To photograph a deep red dahlia in monochrome against an almost black background.

Even with a careful blend of natural and artificial light this is still a challenging proposition. The obvious choice of printing method to reveal the subtle tonality of this image is the Platinum/Palladium process.

Here is Richard’s finished result.
