Michael:

Very nice images!

Could you tell us a bit more about the SB800 speedlight placement and control?

Was the SB800 on-camera for images one and three, and off for number two?

Thanks in advance.

I had a sign on my darkroom that said: "Please keep the door shut, or all the dark will leak out."

Thanks for your comments.

I had the SB800 in remote mode and the on-camera flash in commander mode. I had a diffusion screen that I held the flash behind for most shots but a few I would lay the flash down and extend the bounce card or even shoot direct. I will have do some work to try and figure out which was which but I never used the on-camera flash or the SB-800 in the hotshoe.

Very nice, especially number 3. What did you use as background?

Lnease,

thanks for your nice comments.

I used black Fleece from the local fabrick store (50% off New years sale). I bought 3 yards and drapped it over the back and bottom of a PVC light box frame (open PVC cube). The fleece trapps the light so well that in post processing, I can run the shadows down until the entire background is being clipped and can then bring the exposure up on the flowers without the background showing up at all. It also means that during the exposure, i can control the light with no unwanted reflected light. I was inspired by other photographer in this form that posted pictures of a flowers on black several months ago and have been working out the details since then.

Thank you for you comments. I still have some more work to do on controlling shadows on the leaves so stay tuned for more images when I can get some hobby time.
