Rose Study

“It takes a loyal gardener to tend roses.” ― Sondra Faye 

These particular roses were not from my garden (which would be impossible, I live in an apartment), rather they were purchased from my neighborhood florist. The roses on this particular day were spectacular: very fresh, vibrant, no blemishes or damaged pedals. I purchased 2 dozen and immediately started setting up for the shoot. The challenge was creating a “natural” lighting with a single handheld speedlight while working at extremely close distances with a macro lens. After spending several hours tinkering with various camera and flash setting, lighting angles, tripod placement, refocusing and arranging the roses, I was finally able to capture this image. Both versions (black and white, color) are actually from the same image. Prints are available through www.jeremyherman.pixels.comTechnical details: Nikon D700, Nikkor 105 f2.8 micro lens, ISO 800, 1/60th @ f13.

The world beyond my window…

Just a couple of new iphonographs, entitled The World Beyond My Window (#1 & #2). More to come as this will likely be a weekly project.
