The Photo Story
It’s been cold, snowy and windy in the Midwest United States. At this time of year when it’s really cold and snowy outside, I like to do macro and flower photography in my basement studio. I purchased these pink flowers at the local grocery store.
These flowers photos were photographed in my macro studio using a Sunpak LED 30 Video Light for front lighting. Also used reflected light from a gooseneck desk lamp to add some light for the lower right flower. I used black velvet cloth for the photo background.
Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1
Lens: Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro
Focal Length: 60mm
Shutter Speed: 2 seconds
Exposure Compensation: 0
- The photo was cropped in Lightroom 5.
- The Dark Contrast Filter in Google’s Color Efex Pro was used to add contrast to the flowers.
- I used the Clone Stamp Tool in Photoshop CC to clean up the background.
- Slightly sharpened the flowers using the Unsharp Filter and a Layer Mask in Photoshop CC.
