    wonderful work Nadine! I’m curious about your thinking behind the flash/natural light combo, do you mind giving me a hint..? It certainly works a treat!

  • thanks, dieter – I use the Nikon speedlight kit which comes with two flash units on a ring around the front of the lens (they use the same sort of kit on CSI for forensic photographs!). The new trick I’ve discovered is using liveview for even extra sharpness – and the black backdrop (my graduation gown hung on another sort of pole contraption) helped to enhance the coloursI think. the colours certainly look better than in the shots without the black background. Hope that helps and thanks for asking!

    aaaahhh… yeah, they’re cool! A friend of mine uses that speedlight kit for medical photography, and it occasionally gets seconded for macro work on weekends… ;)

  • my husband just told me I must be doing something wrong with the flash for it to take 15 secs. so back to the drawing board tomorrow.

    Nadine, this is amazing, looks like fire……my favourite of all the entries – way to go with the final hour sprint to the finish line.

  • that’s so kind of you, last month’s winner, natalie! thanks again :)

    not necessarily, I figured that you were balancing flash with ambient light deliberately (which is why I asked, and that seems to make sense at f/29)… since the flash is instantaneous your exposure may as well be 1/500s if you’re not going to try and get ambient light involved. Do some experimenting, I’d be curious to see the difference between straight flash and a mix of both… Cheers :) Dieter
