do you have to use a special flash when using tubes?

KeldBach Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010
No, not necessarily. But some diffusion is usually a good thing. Using a 60mm lens, as I did here, puts me only about 5 cm (2 inches) from the flower, so it's easy to catch a lot of reflections from the flash, which again means burned out highlights. The twin flash set allows me to control that pretty well.

60mm 100mm Im still going back and forth on the 2. With the 100 you dont need to get as close.hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I would definitely choose the 100mm. I've never managed to capture a butterfly with the short one; they're too shy.

can one do more with the 100mm?

Not really when it comes to macro, but I use both lenses for many other purposes. Only when it comes to shooting birds, I need to use a longer lens.

I know the 100 is good for portraits, what else?

Almost anything you can imagine. Apart from street photography and landscapes, perhaps, where I would use a shorter lens, somewhere from 10 to 50mm.

The blending effect isn't nearly as strong as with HDR. Looks more natural, I think. Thanks for the fav :)

Thanks, Jen. But I'm not sure it's a Daisy. Perhaps some kind of coneflower, or do you know better?

I absolutely don't. And I don't want to lie to you. I don't do well with flower names.

No problem, Jen. Even a Gerbera is some kind of a Daisy, so why not this one ;)

lol. i was laughing when i wrote your comment cuz i was thinking that except for like the roses and hibiscus - none of my pics have the name of the flower in it. :) I usually wait for someone to say "Oh what a nice _______" Thats how I find out what they are. :D O and as far as the Gerbera, you just educated me.
