Playing with light

I was messing around trying to learn how to use my flash (a Nikon SB-600). I want to see how I can vary or lock the light at a certain level. I’m not there yet but I’ve nearly managed to get a shot I’ve always liked. One where the background goes black on a bright day.

This one was shot indoors (kind of cheating) in a well lit room. Being inside certainly helps keep the orchid still and also stops me getting cold. I can also enjoy a nice coffee at the same time.

Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Sigma 105mm Macro
ISO: 100
Exposure: 1/250 sec at F3.5
