Say Ahhh - Day 42 of 365
This is a picture of the same grocery store orchid that has showed up in several of my 365 shots in the past ( Need a Bigger Frame, Orchids in the Sky, and Full Bloom). Tonight a I got in a used macro lens that I ordered from a guy in Japan (Nikon 105mm 2.8 AF Micro), so I thought that I should get right into it and figure out how to use it. Obviously (hopefully), this is a shot right down the "mouth" of one of the orchid blooms. I think it looks kind of like a mouth with a tongue and a throat.
This was a pretty simple setup. I just set the camera on a tripod, put it in remote CLS mode and held the SB-600 right over the end of the lens.
