Day 322: Gladiola

When I purchased my new LumoPro flash a few days ago, I also picked up a Honl 1/8 grid. I’ve been eager to give it a try, so decided to play with it tonight. The light specs below are in relation to the subject, but I shot the subject at an angle. The stem was vertical, but I rotated the camera to play with composition. I really liked how the grid brightened the edges of the flowers and backlit them a bit for extra detail. The Honl grid may just become my new favorite tool, as I’m a big fan of dramatic light and it gives me a little more light throw than my snoot.

Camera Specs:
1/125 sec @ f/16, 300mm, ISO 100

Light Specs:
Flashes: Canon 430 EXII @ 1/32; LumoPro LP 180 @ 1/8

  1. This picture is awesome. I love how you made the lighting so dramatic, theatrical in many ways. The detail on the leaves add to its magic and power. Great shot – made my morning!
