Some more shots from the conservatory. The grim overcast and rainy weather conditions outside happily provided naturally consistent diffused lighting for macro shooting!
First here are a couple of shots of detail from Echeveria rosettes, and a practice shot taken with wireless flash as main light.
ISO 100 1/10 f/5.6
Echeveria x ‘Lola’
ISO 100 1/6 f/5.6
This shot won an Editor’s Pick on NSN this week.
ISO 100 1/250 f/9
On-camera flash @ -3EV
SB600+softbox for rim-light @ -1.3EV
Really only an experiment with me fiddling around with commander mode on the D800E flash control, but a pleasing enough result.
