Was not too long ago I made an oath that I was done taking images of crocuses. So this is not really an image of a crocus, but rather one of many I took today to experiment with fill flash and light modifiers. So never mind the crocus :wall-an:

Lovely lighting, and nothing wrong with the subject matter at all Matt.

Really nice! Any chance you could 'fill us in' on how you achieved the shot?

Used just one flash on this one, and then used Photoshop to really boost the blacks. The main light was natural and had a bit of a backlighting effect on the blossom. Other than that: Sigma 150mm, f8, 1/100, ISO 160, D300S
