A Perfect Rose
Was on facebook and my good Aussie friend Daniel Bust posted some Valentine’s Day images of a rose shot. Been wanting to do a macro of a “perfect” rose for awhile, so Daniel’s post was a swift kick in the pants (sorta-speak) which promptly had me gathering a bunch of equipment setting up a pseudo studio in the living room. 3 Kenko extension tube, 1 70-200mm lens, 1 Canon 500D macro lens, 1 SU-800 Commander Unit, 1 SB-900 flash, and 1 Lastolite Ezybox, and a Nikon D3…
…and of course 1 red rose.
Alot of stuff against one poor little flower.
But then again capturing the perfection, texture, color, softness that only nature can provide… it’s all worth it.
…Special Shoutout to Daniel, I owe you a Big Thank you for finally dragging my butt off the couch and taking this shot.
