Instructional video on how to plant an ornamental grass.
I combined two different version of this image in Photoshop using layers and masks in order to get the best light from each image. Kind of a do it yourself HDR.
Strobist info: One SB600 in a Honl snoot, hand held and slightly behind the plant for backlighting, and a second SB600 in a softbox in front to throw a little light without overpowering the back light. The flashes were in manual mode and adjusted until I got the levels I wanted. Triggered by my D90 in commander mode.
Other plants and flowers that I’ve photographed using strobes can be seen in my strobe lit plant set. In the description, I list resources that I’ve used to learn how to light with off camera flash. www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157628079460544/...
