The admirable Botany Photo of the Day sometimes takes a side-trip into photo technique (as for example in today’s remarkable shot). A few weeks ago they pointed to this lesson in lighting technique from Nature Photographers Online Magazine; I suspect anyone who’s snuck up on a flower with a camera will find it interesting. Oddly though, I found that in that photo sequence, I vastly preferred the first, unimproved, shot, with the sharpish shadows highlighting the petal textures. What do you think?
