Marvelous Marcia

Still experimenting with lighting, I used a "simulated" soft box to make the shadows less harsh and still retain some of the ambient light.

Ambient only with all the blemishes and the holder


"Softbox"

Re: Marvelous Marcia

Gary, I strongly prefer the 2nd. Softer shadows and less specular reflections in the "dewdrops"!

Thanks, Russ. My "real" softbox should be here tomorrow. I'm very anxious to see what it produces.

Thanks very much. Florals require a little extra time and attention to minute detail. Every flower is different and presents a different nuance. Once you get the knack of it, it's pretty easy.
