I spotted this little flower in my back yard, in our small raised bed and I felt inspired to break out my camera and try to capture it. The late afternoon sun was placing the raised bed into shadow so I also broke out my SB-900 and Rogue Flashbender to provide some more flattering, indirect lighting. I then took several shots with the flash set to TTL/BL and was not very happy with the results as the flower was getting washed out. To compensate for this I switched over to manual on both my D2X and SB-900, finding a happy medium with the flash set to 1/4 power and the camera set to 1/100 sec and f/14 on my 60mm macro lens.
I like how the strands of spider web add a little extra interest to the shot - wondering where the spider may be; when did they leave; when will they return.
And I still like the square format to give a more balanced image (to me), some may not be too enamored with it but I like it on this particular shot.
Until the next entry, keep exploring and experiencing...
