An unreliable memoir


Drosera capensis

Nikon D5200 Tamron 70-300mm f22 70mm +68mm 1/125 ISO 800

I have photographed this plant – Drosera capensis – before when I was first playing with my extension tubes. This time I was playing with lighting variations. I don’t normally let these plants flower as it takes so much energy out of them they normally die afterwards, but I let this inflorescence grow because the white flowers are a good subject for testing macro lighting without blowing out the highlights or too much harsh contrast. I’m quite pleased with the above shot, less pleased with the one below but part of the problem there was getting the post processing wrong:
