Caption/Abstract Just playing around with my new ringflash (a Metz 15 MS-1) and trying to get some real close-ups. Love the details it reveals. This is a fairly large flower, but in the middle...there is a hole bunch of things there that you usually don't see very clearly. I used the ringflash, with a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 macro lens, with the 12mm and 36mm of the Soligor Extension Tubes to a higher magnification ratio (unfortunately also a shorter DOF). The flash was set to its full power with the reflector in place. Also used a tripod and manual focus of course. All rights reserved. © 2011 Rob Gommans Photography
