    Hi,

    I broke out the old macro lens yesterday, and had a play around with various table lamps :) Here's the result, after a lot of experimenting :cool:

    Details:
    Nikon D70
    Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro
    calumet tripod, pistol-grip head, cheapo macro rail (wobbly!)
    3 clip-on table lamps
    2 home-made flexi-clamps
    1 sheet coloured card
    1 tulip (very dead!)

    f/38, 1sec exposure @ ISO 200

    Hope you like :)

    good idea. dead flowers can be the prettiest
    i think the pink background is really distracting though. maybe a different color.
    I want to be able to focus on the tulip.

    aw its so pink i love it!! I like the texture a lot of the dead flower. Somehow you have it life with the pink background.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the comments :)

    I understand what you mean, Hattie, but the pink colour is integral to what I was trying to say with the picture. I tried to contrast the dead flower with the vibrant, "alive" pink background - kinda like Simon said :D

    Cheers,

    Lee
