Flowers still life.

If you already spent $$$ on flowers get the most out of them. Make some one happy take some good pictures ( I forgot this time) while they are fresh and then take some more before they hit the inevitable trash can.

Here is the final product. The lens used for this picture was the Canon EF 100 mm 2.8 Macro at F4 Speed 125 and ISO 200. I use one Flash Canon 580EXII through a unbrella, so lighting was pretty simple as you can see.

Thanks for looking.

Still life Photography with a few fruits.

This is the result of having 2 peaches an apple and some time in my hands. For this image I used a Canon EF 50mm 1.4 set at F8. The ISO was set at 100 and the speed at 250. The lighting was pretty simple group A was a Canon 580EX with an umbrella to the right of the camera and Group B a Canon 430EXII also with an umbrella to the left of the camera. The flashes were on ETTL II instead of manual. The master unit was a Canon 580EX II sitting on the camera hot shoe it was only used as a transmitter to the other 2.  The ratio was set at the highest I could 8:1.

The picture was then cropped a bit and with Photo Shop did the last touches.

If you have any questions that I did not covered here, or like to share some images feel free to post. I’d encourage anyone to ask questions or suggest a topic to future postings.

Thanks for looking.

Still photography.

Here is the picture for today. Last night I did not have a lot to do and decided to head to the fridge and see what was in it. Found a basket load the beggies  and shoot some pictures. The image  was shot with a Canon ef 50mm 1.4 @ F8 for a good depth of field, ISO 200 and speed 1/125th 

The lighting was done with 2 Canon speedlights set to manual mode. A Canon 580EX was on a stand to the back and right of the basket shooting through an umbrela. The second was a 430EX to the left also shooting through an umbrela. The ratio was about 4 to 1.
