#75. "Orchids at f/4"

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
