      Hi Jose,
      Thank you for your question.
      No, I don’t use a tripod fir my flower shots. About the only time I use a tripod if for HDR, long exposure and the odd landscape.
      I also don’t focus stack my shots or edit the blur/focus in anyway. The blur and focus are as they are in camera.
      I had thought of focus stacking some shots but that really wouldn’t give me what I want.
      I like to use the depth of field and OOF areas to help produce depth into the piece.
      The times when I want a greater dof I will close down the aperture and increase the ISO if needed to give me the dof that I want.

    Hi Paul,

    How uplifting to find another photographer with a love for the beauty of the woods and countryside! I love the consistency of lighting technique and skillful use of D-o-F. More power to your lens, mate, and I look forward to seeing future images as they are published…..

    Kind regards, Col

    Hi Paul

    I really admire your work!

    Do you use any speedlights or light modifiers (e.g. reflectors) in your outdoor flower shooting or just the available natural light?

    Kind Regards

      Hi Risto,

      Thank you so much 🙂

      All of my work that you see is just using available, natural light.

      I do however always try to get the softest light that I can.
      On days with harsh sunlight this sometimes mean either trying to find a composition where my body is casting shade on the subject or sometimes shooting with one hand and using the other to provide shade!

      You certainly could use modifiers and there have been times when an assistant holding a diffuser would have been very welcome!

      I am currently experimenting with some different lighting techniques, one of which includes the use of speedlight.
      If I like how these turn you will certainly be seeing them here and on my FB page so please do keep checking back 🙂

      Thank you for your interest and keep on shooting and having fun! 🙂
