Last rose, revisited

15 NOV 2020 | The Beacon of Groveton | rose flower

The preceding photograph shows the same rose bud that was featured in my last blog post, two days later.

Tech Tips

A rose flower cutting from the landscaping at The Beacon of Groveton was photographed against a pure white background (255, 255, 255) using the “Meet Your Neighbours” (MYN) technique.

I used my Fujifilm X-T3 digital camera, a Fujifilm 11mm extension tube, and Fujinon XF80mm macro lens.

One external flash was used to backlight the background (a piece of translucent white plastic) and another flash was used as a key light on the subject.

Check the EXIF/IPTC info for the photograph for complete details regarding photo gear and camera settings.

This photo is a “one-off,” that is, not a focus-stacked composite image. Although the camera aperture was set for f/16, only a small part of the image is in focus.
