Challenge: Free Study 2012-09 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S95
Date: Sep 20, 2012
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 80
Shutter: 1/5
Date Uploaded: Sep 29, 2012

Used an old Quantaray 9500, at 1/16 triggered manually (test), while hand holding above and to the right of the subject, giving a nice side lit look to the scene... Hand held shot with S95 @ 1/5 sec, aperture was set at f/4.5 to keep flash from blowing everything out.

Fairly happy with the results, we'll see what the voters think of my experiment with off camera flash using a P&S cam and a POS flash. :)

Honestly, I think I need a flash that can be used as a slave, because manually triggering them is a bit of a trick.

Superb photo and very well processed. I think I would have cloned out the speckles on the leaves but perhaps they add to it

AHA! So this is what started your thirst!

I actually find using a flash with my P&S very rewarding and fun, and do it pretty often, actually.

Great shot though- love the colors of the snail in particular, and the angling of the light works great for accentuating the swirl of the shell.

Grats on the great finish, Cory. You need to go back and give this little guy something for his time and trouble to pose for you;-);-) You did a bang up job with the lighting and focus - the textures/details on the snail and the leave are fabulous. The red, blue and green colors are bold and rich in tone that they just pop off the page.

Damn, you just missed the top 10 on a Free Study. First place on page two, I guess. Nice shot and finish.
