Koffee Haus Lily

Koffee Haus Lily

f/8.0, 1/1250, ISO-100, 50mm

This was the result of a meeting with a local camera club at my favorite coffee shop. There were a couple of lilies there and I spontaneously challenged the group to photograph it. My vision was to bring down the ambient light so far that the rather well-lit white wall behind the plant appeared to be black, and light the lily with just the flash. I had thought I might be able to do with with super high-speed flash sync and a shutter of 1/5000 or so, but even with a flash on the Speedlite to try to reduce light spill as much a possible, I wasn’t able to accomplish my goal. After the meeting was over I realized I just needed to put a snoot on the flash, and almost immediately I got the result above.
