I would like to hear your thoughts. I don't usually shoot flowers, but I wanted to put the the lensbaby's macro kit to use.

Hi Chastin10. When shooting flowers try and look for soft light, 2 reasons, flowers have very strong colors, quite often they are colors that the photographic process have trouble reproducing and to capture them in bright light you have to under expose them slightly to maintain good color in the highlights. Let the shadow area go dark.In soft light the colors are less vibrant & flatter, allowing you more exposure without blowing color channels. You can adjust the color and tweek the contrast after.#2 the LB has no coating there fore generally handles flat light better. Keep shooting, experimenting and having fun. Happy New Year.tony
