Rainy and cold here today, so I just played around with some little flowers from the yard (NO, I do NOT know what they are, LOL) in a vase.

So little Silver sat squirming in his chair waiting to be called on, then his hand raised high in the air waving from side to side...and finally just blurted out...I know...I know!

"They arean incredible shot of some beautiful flowers", he sighed and sat back and took a deep breath.:blah:

Tracy-

That is a great photo. Try balancing out your light, to prevent the dark spot in the 5 o'clock position.

Wha type of lighting are you using for macro indoors Tracy? I have tried with flash and got alot of really shadowed spots.

MT, can you explain the how to's of balancing out light?

Sure, Silver, it is simple-

Use a slave flash.

TY Everyone.

MT- I kinda like the shadow. It is not something I did on purpose, but in this case I think it actually helps break up the color? Only because the wall and the flowers were so close in appearence. I completely agree that I should lose it under normal circumstances.

I tried quite a few different settings, LOL. Probably a slow front sync flash.

(Whatever that is- looks just like the Red-eye flash to me)

I tried it with fill, none, played with the manual settings, you name it.

There was an incredible amount of natural light coming from the left, so I moved the flowers all arond, even stood in the chair and took the shot.

Yes- you could say I was bored Dawg!

Actually- just really trying to learn this camera inside and out.



Tracy
