A Shot A Day – 2016 (03/24/2016)
Another beautiful butterfly specimen from the Franklin Park Conservatory. Can’t wait to get back and spend some more time with my thinly winged friends.
Canon 5DSR, Canon EF100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM
ISO 400 – 1/200 @ f/22 – 100mm
Canon MT-24EX Macro Flash, 2X Sto-Fen MT-24EX Diffusers
In this image, I really wanted a side profile of the butterfly, I think they look kind of regal posed that way. Allowed a little bit of ambient light to interplay with the strobe light in my exposure and made sure that I kept a careful eye on the focal plane of the subject versus the sensor plane.
