Dried Flower #3
The potpourri bowl offered up this little mummified flower. The leathery petals still have vivid magenta, red, orange and yellow in spots. Photographed on a Calumet portable light table, lit with a single Calumet Quattro 5500K fluorescent beauty dish.
Technical: Nikon D700, Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8, ISO 200, f/16 @ 1/6s, manual focus, tripod, cable release, tethered to a laptop. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, Nik Dfine, Nik RAW Sharpener, Nik Vivenza and Nik Output Sharpener. The fluorescent lighting isn't exactly 5500K, so I use the X-Rite Color Passport system to make a custom camera profile for Lightroom.
