    Now that is a cool orchid! I really love the 2nd & 3rd photos in the series you present here. -Kind of look like soldiers in a parade or something.

    Cheers,

    Your macro shots are amazing. Reminds me of a factory assembly line, or something. See all the little hair barrettes they are producing? :-) Without your photography Nelson, these fascinating details would be lost to us.

    Nelson, are you relying entirely on ring lighting for the closeup shots?

    Not really.

    The ring flash takes a bit of time to discharge, and I am used to my old Olympus C5060 which is one rapid cam.

    The more important lighting elements are the two reflectors; I had bought one more ($55) with this new cam. Reflectors are those small metal umbrella-like thinggies...They diffuse light, and to take down the harshness I cover them with white handkerchiefs as the mood demands. The umbrella reflector is too expensive, I think it is $500 each.

    I also bought a tent ($50), a small contraption that is a white plastic or polyvinyl-like contraption that helps diffuse the light so that imparts some softness. The plant goes inside the tent and one lights up directly inside or outside as the situation demands...

    I had lurked in the digicam forums for months before I went to the camera shop, so I had a good idea of what I wanted. I think I sent you the link several months before?
