Outstanding work !
Vivid and eye-catching.
The incredible detail, clarity and saturation give the image an almost 3-D effect.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was captured in a controlled environment, on a tabletop in my lounge-room.
Time
I noticed for some time a low growing plant in my garden that that had been flowering. Beautiful flowers. It was early one morning when I thought I should capture an image of this freshly opening specimen.
Lighting
The lounge-room has a large window that allowed a lot of diffused morning light in to illuminate the area where I had placed the flower in a very small vase, small enough to secure this single flower rather well.
Equipment
As I mentioned earlier the flower was supported in a vase but I had passed the stem through a yellow paper towel. Yellow was chosen, as it was a good contrasting color to the flower. I mounted a Tamron 90mm macro-lens to my Canon 6D which was supported on a tripod. In addition to the sunlight passing through the window I utilized a single, off-camera flash.
Inspiration
Well, I liked to capture a truly sharp image of the flower and to do this with the macro lens I planned to focus stack several images. The lens was refocused through several shots and various depths into the scene..
Editing
Haha, yes, a little work in the processing. Minor adjustments were made in Lightroom, lens correction and tweaking the images. Then these half a dozen images were saved as jpg's and uploaded into Photoshop and focus-stacked.
In my camera bag
I like to travel heavy, if you have the equipment take it with you or you may regret it. So, I have crop-frame and full-frame Canon, macro, prime and zoom lenses, 2-3 off camera flash units, light stands and light modifiers, and a sturdy tall tripod. Many a time I will take into work one camera varying the type of lens from time to time to capture scenes in my daily travels. Though sometimes I may just enjoy the view and not take a shot at all.
Feedback
Advice on shooting a flower or other interesting item and focus-stacking. Shoot the item as flat-on a possible, choose contrasting colors, de-clutter the scene and be patient. Enjoy!
