Practicing...

The speaker at our Photo Club meeting this week showed a technique for making your blooms really showy.  After a trip to the hardware store to purchase LED flashlights, pipe clamps, threaded rod, nuts and bolts, and a length of PVC pipe, DH put together a wonderful light bar for me!  The following photos were my first experience with the new light bar, which is mounted to a tripod.  I think, with practice, this might be a wonderful way to create some real art!




These are straight out of the camera, using spot metering, ISO 1600, Shutter Speed 1/800, f5.6.

Amazing photography! The flowers got a special beauty!! It is nice that you gave the shooting specification also at the end. Thank you :)
But one thing, didn't you notice that the right side gadgets have overlapped the photos? :)

Fantastic shots, Linda. Now you gave me ideas about LED lights... :-)

Lovely shots. You may have hit on a great idea. Hubby has been trying to get me to use a tripod and an up-fill flash when shooting macros. I have yet to decide that all that extra work is worth the effort. Perhaps, I should give it a try.

Wow what a difference! I obviously need some more expertise for my quilt pics, just don't have time to study up on techniques, Linda.
