OK, so maybe not in this case. Couple from the weekend.
I like the lighting on both of these shots. What did you use for the source?
It was a very complex setup.
I moved the coffee table over to the window. It was about 3 feet away. Overcast day, so sunlight was very defused. I used the on board flash for the second one. I held a piece of paper in front of the flash to help defuse the lighting somewhat.
Ok I got part of it right lol. I figured it was mostly natural light.
Way to think on your feet.. lol
Very nice pictures! The lighting was perfect.
Wow. I love both of these pictures....A LOT! What kind of Macro do you have?
Great, great shots!
Overcast? The first picture makes it look like it was very bright outside.
Nice use of diffused fill flash to help the shadows from being too dark.
i really like them both. the first is composed well, with the rose on the left side. I've always been a fan of lightish orange with gray as a color scheme in things, so I really like that.
One thing I'm wondering is if you sprayed the rose with water, or was it like that?
Taken with my Takumar 100mm F4 Macro 1:2
I grabbed a spray bottle, and gave it a few squirts.
Was definitely overcast. Half second exposure, so I think that helped bring what little light there was, out.
