More succulents

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.


Echeveria laui




Nikon D800E/200f4micro

ISO 100 1/10 f/5.6



Echeveria x ‘Lola’




Nikon D800E/200f4micro

ISO 100 1/6 f/5.6

This shot won an Editor’s Pick on NSN this week.



Aloe concinna




Nikon D800E/200f4micro

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.
