Taking flower photo at dusk time

Project Description

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I took a same flower shot at the time sun goes down. This time, I didn't have enough lights to get clear photo of Iris flower. So, Instead of changing to higher ISO to get bighter image, I set the shutter speed at long exposure of 2.5 seconds and also fired flash into the flower. This combining technic using long exposure and flash really worked well without getting noisy.

What you will need

  • I used flash light which built in Sony Nex-7 mirrorless. Also I set the shutter speed at 2.5 seconds to get long exposure shot while the lens widely open at f 6.3 to take-in all light source around. I addition
  • I sprayed waters over the flower to get raindrops.
