Take one Geranium - bung it in a plamp. Position one strobe in front slightly left, hold flashgun behind pointing at the wall - hope for the best.

Add a hint of Lucisart Whyeth to the flower.

It seems to work okSmile

Thanks folks - and thank you Mike for your award Smile

This method seems to work quite nicely and the plamp is certainly a very useful tool - it's been mostly used for suspending things like dead bugs and holding up little wooden men but is also quite handy for flowers too!

I certainly plan to play more with this set-up. Plans are now afoot to see if I can modify the light from the flash to produce a wider, flatter band of light. So far a cardboard tube and silver foil are part of the plans!

Quote: Very nice.

How do you trigger your lights?

I've got a Godox trigger system that came with my Elemental lights. The trigger works fine - alas the lights are now very temperamental and I'm going to have to consider a new set when finances allow. Fortunately I have a 150w Interfit light that is more than adequate for flower pics and totally reliable.

The flashgun is a old Vivitar DF200 - it does the job nicely.
