I love looking at closeups of brightly colored flowers. Thanks! I keep waiting for one of the precariously-clinging drops to suddenly let go and run down a petal.
Was this available light outside or did you bounce a flash?
My children presented these flowers to their step-Mother with a note with the words "We Love You, Mom". The rain drops are probably her tear drops The strangest things can make her cry.LOL.
Anyway, I sat the flowers in the bay window in front of white shear curtains. I made a paper cone out of a rolled-up sheet of paper, scissored multiple slits in the wide end, dipped it in a glass of water and used it to sprinkle the flowers.
Available light through the window from the right side.
a hand mirror to direct a smidge of kicker light to hightight the in-focused flower in order to accentuate a point of focus.
Exposure Compensation was -1/3 (don't know if this made a difference, but my intention was to enhance the point of focus).
Camera was tripod mounted and the timer delay was used.
Camera distance was probably less than 12 inches.
Nicely done and some ideas I will have to try!
