#75. "Orchids at f/4" In response to In response to 0 Wed 29-Feb-12 07:28 PM by Valentino
Orchids shot with a 150mm macro lens at f/4 to blur background.
D300 handheld Sigma 150mm @ f/4, 1/90 second Nikon SB800 Speedlight set to Slow Sync - I can't handhold this close with a 150mm lens at 1/90 sec and get a sharp subject without flash. However, this is still the DOF problem - stopping down gets everything sharp but results in a busy background
