I really enjoy taking photos of flowers. If you have followed this blog for long you may have noticed some with the white background before. This works very well for me. It's an environment easy to control and it shows off the flowers rather nicely. Roses are pretty good subjects. You can spend a couple hours with them for photographs then then wrap them up and give them to someone at dinner. They smell nice too. These are currently being used in an experiment with time lapse photography. Might take a week or so they last so well. With all the flowers starting to come out soon you may see more flower photos.
For this I used the 24-70 2.8 at 50mm 1/160th sec f22 iso 400. Lighting was a strobe at camera left shot through an umbrella at the background and one through an umbrella at camera right at the flowers. I did some processing with Color Efex Pro 4 (even though they spell colour wrong).
