Default Some New Indoor floral closeups

Shot with an E30 and 70-300 Zuiko, using an EX25 tube and FL50R fitted with Demb flash bounce attachment, used at varying angles.

These were in-camera JPEG's using default settings with the exception of the noise filter, which was set to low, with some additional post processing using Olympus Studio.





Even stopped down to f8, depth of field is very narrow.

Very nice. What were your working distances with that setup?

Very close. Within 1-3 feet in all of them.

Really nice images, Greg. I particularly like #2. Looks like I've got another experiment to try... if we ever get flowers again. I s'pose I could go to the florist and get some though, eh?

That's where these came from!

Every Monday our office gets a fresh display delivered for the front lobby. When they look like they might be fun, I stay after work and try a few things.

I vote for #2. Nice composition with the contrasting veins and soft pastels.

Hi Greg

Some fine close ups.... no 2 is really fine and so are 3 and 4. The detail looks just great and fine colours too ! Were these OOC jpgs or RAw conversions... and studio or ACR?

Cheers

Hi, Harj. Thanks.

In-camera JPEG's with a noise filter setting of "Low" and all other parameter at default levels. I Used the Unsharp Mask sharpening tool in Olympus Studio. The standard USM setting I'm using on E30 in-camera JPEG's with sharpening in-camera set to -0- is 85%, with a Radius of 1.0 and Amount of 2. I'm pretty sure that was what I used on all of these.
