    Very nice indeed, the R1C1 supplies lovely lighting for this kind of stuff.

    Thanks for sharing

    Stunning Photo!!!!
     
  6. Thank you all, its very encouraging feedback, incidentally the lens I used was the 105mm 2.8 macro, I believe it’s a good combination with the R1C1 set up

    John, you have inspired me! I have the R1C1 and have yet to take the time to really learn how to use it. With winter coming on, you've given me the desire to get into studio work again, and to use this great lighting system. Thank you!

    I LOVED the rose - also like these Gerbera's a lot! Great work!

    I was in a similar situation, had the R1C1 for a few months along with the 105 lens and never took any shots, then finally decided to have a go, really glad I did as the combination really works well and so far very pleased with what I have produced……

    The colours are great!
    The water drops give that special touch!

    I´ve never trried the R1C1, but tried Sigma ring Flash in friends Canon, and did not like it, the backgrounds always were subexposed, probably it was a humam error (Or Canon error!!!! Ehehehe), do you guys note this with the R1C1?

    I just carried out a few test exposures first and that seemed nail it, just used NX2 for processing and that’s the result you see
