I haven't had a chance to shoot in a while so I went to the store and bought some flowers and had a go at them in my bathroom "studio" today. Here's the first samplers with more to follow when I process the rest:

David,
I really like you photos....Thanks for posting them.

I'm in the market for a macro lens and I was wondering what lens you used for these?

Thanks,

thanks...

Thanks for the nice comments. As some of you are probably already aware, I do my macro shooting in my "studio" aka the spare bathroom. The black backdrop on this occasion was a T-shirt. The lighting as always came from the frosted dome skylight. As for the lens, I have the 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 with the macro function... nothing fancy here. If I had my druthers I'd get the 105 f/2.8 micro-nikkor, but I've got other lenses on my list ahead of it right now (70-200 VR, 12-24 DX).

thanks again,

Dave

Dave,

The lighting and composition are sensational! I wonder if my son and husband would permit me to convert the basement bathroom into a studio?? Hmmm?? Your idea has possibilities... :biggrin:

no need to convert...

That's the great part about my "studio". I took me about 2 minutes to get set up. I got a black t-shirt out of the closet, hanger and all, and hung it from the mirror. I taped the sides to the mirror in two places to smooth it out a bit, then I put the flowers, still in their vase, in the right position to use the backdrop and still sit in the light and viola... instant studio.
