Doing some still life photography.

As winter drags on and I wanted to explore still life photography a bit more, I bought some tulips the other day and set up my flash unit as I had done before. I had some trouble figuring out the correct exposure as a small flower against a dark background is easily over exposed but I found a cheap Sekonic Flashmate L-308S which worked wonders.

See the schematic of the lighting I used below:

Thanks to Kevin Kertz for his Lighting Setup PSD file.

This is the gear I used:

Camera: Pentax 645NII
Lens: Pentax 645 A 150mm f/3.5 with Pentax Auto Extension Tube-A #1 (14mm)
Flash: Pentax AF-360FGZ with a shoot-through umbrella but used inversed
Reflector: Expro RF-154 (using the white side)
Film: ADOX CHS 100 ART exposed at EI 200.

These are the still lifes I took over a period of a week:
