Peonies on Black

I think any flower looks great photographed with a black background.  I hang a piece of black velvet over a trifold upright on a table and wait for the afternoon sun to be perfect coming through the windows.  I prefer the natural light for these photographs.

I visited a friend's garden who has magnificent peonies, both of the tree version and the herbaceous. The rows and rows of peonies are magnificent.  I clipped a few samples and brought them home to photograph that afternoon.  Here is a selection from that "shoot".
