I recently attended a macro workshop focused on the use of flash in macro photography. I shot this pink rose indoors with some window light and two Nikon SB-R200 speedlights mounted on my Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens. The background was a photo of a sky that I liked when I took the shot but not when I looked at it up close in Lightroom. That’s when I decided to colorize the image add the textures.
I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Colorize and Darken/Lighten Center, and the textures are Purple Grunge and Smokhouse from French Kiss Textures.
