Remote Flash Test Two 2015 — photo 8 of 11: It was a gray, gloomy Oregon morning in my backyard, less than half an hour after sunrise. A bit of the illumination was from what natural light there was under such conditions, but the vast majority of light on this daffodil was from an Olympus FL-600R wireless remote flash, which I was holding in my left hand. When processing the photo in Adobe Lightroom, I chose the white balance preset called “Cloudy” to give the image the warm color tinge of early-morning light.
Below is a nearly-identical image. The primary difference is the location of the flash which I was holding above the flower. Notice the different highlights and shadows created in the petals simply by a small shift in light position. March 2015.
Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
