Bee Orchids In Full Bloom | Macro Photography

Yesterday I was out with my macro lens to test my new ring flash and I wasn't disappointed. Even using my regular flash before I could get about f16/18 but with the ring flash I'm able to use f45 + which is really important for macro photography because you have such a shallow depth of field. You can use image stacking techniques but I'm far to lazy for that and I want to get it right on camera whenever possible so this new ring flash really helps. Here is a photo of a Bee Orchid in the undergrowth. For more macro photography click here,
