Cold as Ice

Cold as Ice

Looking forward to getting a true macro lens as even with the 10x close up lens/filter I couldn’t get the look I wanted with the water drop. I ended up decreasing the clarity to -100% for everywhere on the flower except the water drop. Outside of that, I love the colors and look.

For the setup I used a mirror under the flower and a sheet of blue tissue paper clamped onto the back of a box; I handheld a small LED flashlight to light up the tissue paper.

More photos taken in the same session to come.
