    Am posting a couple of recent wildflower pics taken with the D70 and Nikon Macro 200 f4. Used SB800 and Really Right Stuff portrait flash holder for fill. Not great but would appreciate severe criticisms :cry: !

  3. Not quite sure what the problem is here, but when I copied and pasted one of your URL's into my browser, it brought up the entire gallery, not just one pic...

    Let's try again...

  6. Hi Jerry,

    Like your butterflies shots, these are amazingly well exposed. Did you use fill flash in these shots?

    Regards.

    Hey Jerry,

    Is there any area of photography where you aren't very good? 8)

    First it was dragonflies, then butterflies, then birdies, and now flowers. Excellent stuff. Makes my eyes feel good. :wink:

    fill flash

    Thanks for the comments. I just try to piddle here and there. You folks have the talent, as I have been lurking on several of you for some time now on another site.
    Re whether I use fill flash. Yes I do and prefer it, especially with digital which allows me to fine tune. I simply love the SB800 (but as TTL and not TTL BL) and the Really Right Stuff portrait package brackets. This along with their camera bracket give me lots of flexibility for vertical/horizontal composition. Also prefer the Sto-Fen Omni Bounce for the flash head. If/when I don't use the latter, I tend to really cut the flash strength down sometimes to -2 or even -3. I have to admit that I typically shoot in manual mode most all of the time, although recently am trying out Apeture Priority as well. If I shouldn't be dropping brand names here I apologize. No relationship with any of these folks but happen to really like the products even though quite pricey (what in photography isn't??).
    Please be aware that if I REALLY knew what I was talking about I would be considered dangerous!

    Jerry,

    Naming of brand names is actually preferred. It helps us all find needed equipment. If you actually were a representative of a company that you mention (and I know you aren't in this case), just say so up front. We don't mind at all.

    This is a discussion forum for photographers. We discuss equipment.:wink:
     
  10. Very very nice Jerry!! :D :D :D
