As you will know by now, I like to spend time messing about with the photography thing, exploring possibilities, not towards a specific end but more as experience for future reference – something I would recommend to anyone, no matter what their skill/knowledge/experience level. (When was the last time you picked your camera manual up and checked out what your camera can do?)
I thought I’d try out some simple lighting on a daffodil, that I supported in a milk bottle. I thought you might be interested in the results.
The shot above is a from a simple hand flash set at an angle to the front, with a supplementary reflector to the other side to kill as much of the shadow as possible.
In hindsight, I should have brushed the pollen out of the trumpet but hey, it was only an experiment.
