The story of this photo:
A few weeks ago, I uploaded my first serious macro photo (titled: Four in a Row). While that was the first photo I uploaded, it was not actually the first macro photos I processed, which would be the one you see here. Those blossoms are tiny (just about 2mm insize). This is the stuff that is put into a bouquet of roses to give it a bit more volume and contrast. The red background are actually dried roses.
How it was shot:
- Taken with a tripod
- Single exposure
- Camera: Nikon D7000
- Lens: Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm 1:2,8G VR
- One speedlight with a small softbox to the left and slightly behind the blossoms to give it some backlight.
How it was post-processed:
- Post-processing was done in Photoshop
- Topaz DeNoise
- Topaz Details for bringing out the details and for some basic color correction
- Some retouching to remove distracting dust particles etc.
- Curves layer for more contrast
- Vibrance layer for the orange and red/magenta tones
- Saturation layer (master)
- Slight vignetting [details]
