Day 65 – Lily

Just down the street in front of an apartment building stands the most perfect and beautiful Lily.  Today was very overcast as we await the ‘Pineapple Express’ to come through – we are supposed to receive upwards of 2″ of rain while northern California should get blasted with several feet of snow.  But more about the picture – with overcast skies, the light was very flat so I placed a 600 ex-rt flash on a light stand with a Westcott Apollo 43″ ORB octobox light modifier slightly elevated, camera right on 1/4 power.  Camera was on tripod.  There was a breeze, so the flower kept moving – I took several images in order to focus stack, but with the movement, it wasn’t working, so I processed this one image.

Shot with Canon 5D3, 85mm f/1.2L with Canon EF25 extension tube, f/9.0, 1/200″, ISO 100
