(Image from Welcome to SingaporeWeddingFlorist.com - ROM, Solemnizations, and Weddings,, image rights belong to me, etc etc. )
Notes: This is an early strobist work of mine. shooting in tight time condition. 5mins to shoot the flowers. The only props: glass vase as seen.
1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
Please critique flash technique. Kindly do not critique the flower bouquet itself or the flower buttonhole . If there are any suggestions on how better to place the flowers, I would most gladly welcome them!
2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
A reasonably focused (artistically and optically) capture of the yellow flower bouquet
3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
8pm before handover to another vendor, off office premises (ie, just got out of a car with a vase);
frantic photography (yes, could have been better planned but tight schedule). This image was the "best" of series shot in 5 minutes worth of shooting.
Physical shooting conditions: F8, 1/160, Manual Flashes YN465 and 460 II , shooting manual flash manual mode .
4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
I felt that the spotlight was literally on the flowers. But as I am a newbie to strobist work I humbly seek all constructive C & C
Thanks in advance to all helpful sempai, seniors, mods, pros, and cats (if any)
