Orange and manual overload

12 Sep


As you know, I got my Nikon SB 600 flashgun and only know how to use one setting. I tried reading the manual but got lost in the formulas. So, if I really want to get the right settings, I need to bring out my other Nikon D40 manual and compare notes. That give me so much headache, I decided to just go through trials and errors.


Overall, I am not happy with these photos because I want the orange to ooze juices like those advertisements and I couldn’t get the sharpness I want. Still can’t figure out why. I use aperture priority, manual focus setting, aperture around f13 and above.

Since I use the flashgun, how did the shadow appear?


Never mind, I will go and eat more oranges till I get the sharpness I want. Oranges are good for your skin!

    Hmmm, why don’t you spray some water to make the orange looks juicy.

    Anyway, you didn’t diffuse the flash properly ;) try make youself a DIY macro “photo studio”.

    What you need to do is put sb600 outside the “strobist”, enable SB600 slave mode, and use you D40 flash to trigger it. And you can see some TTL slave trigger results here. :)
