Week 32 (August 6th - August 12th) | Picture 48

It's so fascinating to me how one small light changes EVERYthing about an image. My previous post today shows how using only ambient natural light and exposing for the flower made the white background really stand out.

So tonight I decided to take almost the exact same setup and blast the flower with light.

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 105mm f/2.8 macro
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/250
ISO: 200
Flash: Flash: SB-800 off camera, manual, 1/32th power
Exposure: manual

Keeping my shutter speed at the maximum sync speed didn't allow any ambient light to expose the rest of the room and the result is a black background instead of white. (Both shots from today are composed against the exact same white background.)
