Nikon D200 with -as allways- Tamron SP 90 - 1:250 @ f/13 - ISO 100 - RAW

Lighting: 100W Elinchrom flash into a 24" x 24" softbox at 45° above and front, a 4'x8' white reflector on the left and an SB80-DX (1/8 power) 4 feet above. Background was a piece of black velvet.

Thanks Rich and Sonya !

Two things that i can't live with since i've discovered them: my Tamron SP 90 f/2.8 macro and my Elinchrom 100W with the 24x24" softbox :smile: !

Great pic! I believe the flower is from a Rose of Sharon, which is the same bush my spider thread was on.

Hi Bill !

Yeap ! I learned that it's a kind of Hibiscus, that grows -almost- wild here... but i allways thought that hibiscus grew only in rather hot countries !?!?! ...which Switzerland certainly isn't :wink: !

Well I'll be sure and give f13 more attention on my 90 di
Mind you, the Tamron SP90 is sooooo good that i don't mind shooting well above f/13... i used it sometimes up to f/64 without really noticeable loss of quality ! That's when you get to 1:1, but in reality it corresponds to a "real" f/38 or so... (from what i read) !

Cheers,
J-P.

Thanks for explaining the lighting, JP. Very nice shot.
You're welcome Leif !

I don't mind to divulge my shooting or lighting techniques, as i learned -and keep learning- most of it by reading on Internet :wink: !

I'll experiment with it. Thanks for the information. We usually have a breeze here so I can't get my shutter too slow. But I will try it on a still day.

J-P,

Would you be willing to explain or post a link to an explanation of the f/64 being equivalent to a real f/38?

Thanks,

Leif
