Testing, testing

Seeing what my new reflector and light blockers will do. A few shots with the old lens, no flash.

"Missed my exit again!"

Flash used here, with white reflector and black backdrop. One of the small anemones.

I've been working with the new lens. It's more demanding, has a very shallow depth of field, and stringent light requirements, but it brings out details that I'd never seen before. I'll have more test shots tomorrow.


  1. Some of these pics would make great funny greeting cards. I love "missed my exit again". On a serious note - the pictures are phenomenal as always.

  2. Susannah - Your photos are always spectacular. The clarity of detail and lighting are amazing to me.

  3. That last shot is amazing to me too. - Margy

  4. I am in awe of your photos. You show me a new world.

  5. Thanks, all! Elva Paulson; that's high praise, coming from you!
