A Shot A Day – 2016 (02/03/2016)
“Speaking In Tongues II”
Another Orchid / Serpent image from this past weekend. The Orchids are back at the Franklin Park Conservatory and so am I.
Canon 5DSR, Canon MP-E65mm 1-5X Macro
ISO 200 – 1/100 @ f/16
Canon MT-24EX Macro Flash, 2X Sto-Fen MT-24EX Diffusers
As you might have seen in my previous post, I love Orchids for a myriad of reasons. Such delicate, yet complex blooms.
This image takes advantage of a low ISO to effectively eliminate the background ambient light and a little manual flash to fill in the foreground elements that I found interesting in the composition.
Definitely getting comfortable with the Canon MP-E65mm lens and very happy with the sharpness of the images I am getting from it.
