    As usual sir, exceptional camera work! Pictures are gallery quality, you should find one (gallery) to display your work. That greenhouse addition just might be paid for! :-)

    First, the camera/lens: Nikon D-80 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens. Next, the light: yes light and macro can pose a problem with depth of field issues, i.e., composition. Using a tripod helps stablize things so if you have to slow the shutter speed to get the depth of field at higher f-stop, it makes for a better pic. I try to use natural daylight in the Gh when I can. Using different backgrounds can add/change your end result, too. As for my choice of what to shoot...whatever strikes my fancy....the lighter colored plants seem to lend themselves to better pics rather than the deeper purples, etc. I look for interesting pattern or shapes. But it's all in your eye and what you think will look pleasing or creative....not all of mine are great, in fact with digital you have the luxury of shooting until you get it right and deleting everything else...I scrap plenty; like any photographer, you will only see what they feel is their best...the stuff that falls on the editing floor stays on the floor! Thanks for all the wonderful comments....H

    WOW. I feel like I could crawl right into the flower. Wonderful pics. I agree with Al, you should show your work.
