Hello! Happy Spring everyone. These images were originally taken for a BESP project, but it seems as though the group is more or less calling it quits. I still wanted to submit my images to the forum for your C&C though. The details of the assignment were as follows: 2 images, portrait crop. One flower of your choice, for both images. The 2 images need to have some relation to each other. NO MACRO SHOTS Image should be taken indoors, not in the wild No abstract shots I chose a sunflower, and in my usual fashon for the projects I decided to try out a new lighting method along the way... in this case a clean "blown out" white to go with the bright yellow flower. Image 1: Exposure:0.005 sec (1/200)Aperture:f/11.0Focal Length:135 mmISO Speed:320 Lit via 2 off camera flashes, 1 camera right, bounced off the ceiling and wall behind me, the other was just out of the frame on the left, pointing back at the cheapo backdrop ($4 white bedsheet) behind the subject. Image 2: Exposure:0.004 sec (1/250)Aperture:f/5.6Focal Length:135 mmISO Speed:100 Same lighting setup as #1, just moved the lights slightly. Overall I think I did a decent job, but I think another strobe or 2, plus some nice large softboxes/umbrellas would have gotten better results and made things easier on me than the hit or miss bouncing method I ended up using. I also wish I had waited an extra day for the flowers to open up more, they look much better now so I might have to go at it again tonight. I would love to know what you think of the images overall, the lighting, composition/angles, and any tips you have that might help me master this lighting method. Your comments and criticisms are always appreciated. Thanks for looking!
