    Some fab shots there. Flowers is not something I shoot a lot of - but here's a Hydrangea I spotted on holiday recently with some nice light going on.

    Fuji X-Pro2 and 50-140mm F2.8 for those that care

    Delusions of adequacy.

    nice -reds are hard colors to capture . they blow out so easy and look like featureless tomato skins . so you have to shoot reds darker . these still have good detail

    one thing i try to do is get rid of all those annoying bright circles in the photo's . that is why shooting manually with macro flashes is nice . it lets me adjust the back ground dark enough to get all that distracting stuff out . then i let the little flashes expose the subject .

    That hydrangea is gorgeous. I love the blurry backgrounds in the photos.
    How do you produce those effects?

    Those are all certainly paint worthy photos.
    The colour and lighting are very intriguing.

    photography is all about lighting . early on i learned how to best utilize flash photography so i can bring my own lighting even at high noon . when you can control the lighting you can control the aspects of the photograph .

    Veery nice, Keesha; yours, too mathjak. Lovely shots. And that rose is spectacular, Oy. In fact, they all make me wish I still had a camera that would shoot closeups.

    Thanks

    It's a combination of things such as...

    1. Choosing a wide aperture (Small F number)
    2. Haviung the background a long way away compared to the camera to subject distance.
    3. Using a long focal length lens.
