Macro shooting of Camellia Flowers

First photo trip with my new macro lens (bought in Japan ‘at the source’ at Bic Camera, Yourakochu, Tokyo, I went to Palmengarten Frankfurt, a wonderful botanical garden. One further beauty of this place is that one can bring all the gear one likes. So my gear kit looks like this:


The camera sits on a massive tripod and drives, via a cable, an external flash which shoots through a white umbrella for better spreading of the flash light.

With that gear in place I took my first couple of pictures with the new lens (F2.8, 100 mm macro), I was rather happy with the results. All pictures are of “Camellia” flowers.
