All right, folks. I've looked at these two for too long and now I can't decide. So I ask you, which do you prefer?
I like the focus point on the bud better in the first one but the composition better in the second one. As for your next set, I like the second one more. I think the first is too close, plus you lose some color. You using your new flash? Looks good!
I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand
Yeah, I was experimenting with the ring flash and the 430ex as a second flash. For the first set, the 430ex is held directly above pointing straight down. For the tulip, the 430ex is below the flower, lighting through the petals. Both times with a DIY softbox and the ring flash as fill.
I went to the native plant garden at the Golden Gate Park Arboretum yesterday, and I've got a mess of stuff to process. So I'll be posting more soonish.
