In a dog-related incident, an iris flower was snapped off in the kitchen garden.
So, we brought the flower inside, set it on the kitchen counter, and lay down, right beside it, on either side, an SB600 speedlight (off-camera flash-unit), to provide lots & lots of light. And shot it with the 60 mm f/2.8 lens, as close as possible, with a very small aperture.
Why small? Because without a small aperture, shooting way-up-close with that lens yields a remarkably shallow depth-of-field, such that that very little of the scene is actually in focus.
How small? The aperture was set at f/57, which, in case you were wondering, works out to be an opening of a little less than one square millimeter, which is biggish, for a pinhole.
