“Sow Thistle”

I think I like wildflowers best,” I explain. “They just grow wherever they want. No one has to plant them. And then their seeds blow in the wind and they find a new place to grow.” 

– Rebecca Donovan

This image was made a few days ago with my portable background. A few have asked what that setup looks like. Here’s a typical shot, using the sow thistle above as an example:



Nikon D800
Nikor AFS Micro 60mm f/2.8 US @ 60 mm

1/15 sec, f/20.0, ISO 400

    Great photo, Ed, and very interesting technique shown here. What is it you actually use as the black backdrop? I guess this also helps with protecting it from the wind.

    Cool set up! (And beautiful photo.) How do you like your manfrotto? I am looking to change tripods, my jobu is too heavy along with my camera and lens.

    Hi Ed, now I look at the portable studio. I can’t quite get the dimension of it. Is it like a cubicle with clear plastic in the front? How do you raise the velvet to the level of the object? Do you need some backing material for the velvet?
