I shot this scene with both flash heads elevated using Kaiser Adjustable Flash Shoes, so that the flash heads were firing almost straight down. I like the way that the angle of the light made the background a little darker than normal, but at the same time I lost a lot of fine texture detail in the flower. Also had to boost the detail in the shadows.
Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200) + a Canon EF-S 60mm macro lens with 25mm of extension + a diffused MT-24EX (flash head "A" set as the key and "B" as the fill, both on Kaiser flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
Technique: Cut a Wall flower so I could move it to the back yard (where the insects are), put it in a glass with some water to keep it from wilting, and injected the flower with artificial nectar. I had an artificial flower nearby and when the insect started feeding I carefully picked the wallflower up and positioned it in front of the artificial one. I was shading the subject so there is no natural light in this frame.
