Hydrangea

By cattyal  
This is mostly for Fiona aka flowerpower59. I said I'd have a go at the still life pics with just a speedlight so out came my inexpensive Yongnuo this evening. I cobbled together a diffuser effort - pic in the variants and took a few photos - not too bad really.

Just to show that with a single speedlight, a cardboard box and some greaseproof paper it is possible to produce a half decent image - kinda Smile

I've not altered anything - just cropped, resized and sharpened - they're a tad dark but hey, it's my first time and I wanted to show the results as they came out......

Fab! You have restored my faith in my purchase. It really can be done. At the first opportunity, I will be having another bash. Thanks a lot. F

Glad to be of use Fiona Smile Of course it's easier using the big studio light as it has a modelling light so I can get a fair idea of what's going on - it's somewhat more hit and miss with the speedlight but, yep, it canbe done Smile

It shows that it is down to the photographer rather than the equipment.
