Some Photos during Lock down

It's been a while since I picked up the camera and this lockdown gave me a great opportunity to pick up the camera and create some images. It's a good exercise to keep the mind sharp and skills refined. I am also trying a few things in terms of techniques. Here are some images I made recently

These flowers were looking very beautiful and I wanted to create a nice soft image so I pulled out my macro lens and got really close so as to create this dream image

Shooting details ƒ/4.5 Lens 105.0 mm Shutter speed 1/100  ISO 200

The actual size of the flow is actually really small about 2 millimeters in size. See image below get some idea about the size.


To add a bit of punch to the image I added a flash to the camera right and put a small diffuser on top of it and added a shoot-through reflector at the camera right. At a shutter speed of 1/100, the ambient light was completely cut out. I varied the flash intensity from 1/128 power to 1/32 depending on how much the aperture was open.

You can find the rest of my images on my flick stream here.
