Alstroemania!

January 29, 2017  •  1 Comment

I was walking through the produce department at the grocery store the other day and saw these very nice Alstroemeria and immediately thought these would make a nice photographic subject. The weather here has been wet and dreary so outdoor photography has been out of the question. But, with these flowers I could get a quick photography fix by doing some close-ups. And maybe I could end up with a few nice, new, images to brighten the dreary winter days.

Well, after working on the flower close-ups for a while, I decided I would try a few water droplet shots. This is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while and the Alstroemeria would make a nice backdrop.

The extreme close-ups of the water droplets were taken with a 28-70 mm zoom lens and three extension tubes (68 mm total). The 68 mm extension allowed me to approach 1:1 magnification. Drop me a line if you want the technical details of the setup.
