It does look very artificial doesn't it!
It's Sues plant and DOES NOT get moved when it's it flower, so it was probably quite a sight watching me trying to get this shot!!!!

Meanie:

What an incredible shot! The details are so vivid!

I think I still owe you some posted photos of the Wax vines (Hoya carnosa) which bloom on the palms in Balboa Park.

Thank you Delonix.
Because it's not allowed to be moved when flowering it was quite awkward to get the shot. Took several with different flash settings, but because of the pureness of the white they were not right. This shot was taken with a "gel" over the flash.

Meanie:

How interesting. I'll have to look into to getting one myself. I sometimes have problems with close up photos...even with the macro on.

They're just plastic sheets of differing shades which you cut, lick and "stick" to the front of the flash. A bit like a lens filter really. I used the blue one for this on the cameras integral flash (the hot shoe flash would cast nasty shadows this close). Even better would have been a macro lens with a ring flash attached, but I'm still saving!

Meanie:

I'll have to check the info. on the internet. I may need some camera supplies.

I hope the pics I take of the wax vines in Balboa Park come out half as clear as this photo! -- or I may not post them. lol! : > )

What camera do you have Meanie if you don't mind me asking ?

29 Jul, 2010

 

Mushy - it's just a Nikon D40. A good entry level DSLR.
