Any help that can be given to do the following would be greatly appreciated. I would like to take a picture of a red rose: - straight on down at it (that is, not at any angle but right into the flower) - capturing the whole flower in the frame, without anything cut-off - as sharp as possible - with as much red color saturation as possible - and with as much "3d" effect as possible Leaving any artistic issues aside, what are the optimal conditions, equipment and technique to try and "perfectly" capture the rose. I will probably be doing this with a Nikon D90. So given that, what lens would be best, lighting, settings, set-up, etc. If I did have my choice of camera/lens for the optimal pic - - what would that look like (within reason . Thanks!
