    Dan, this was a wonderful post. Those flower shots are GORGEOUS! I will definitely be trying this! Thank you so much for sharing!

    I know rules must be broken if you wanna achieve something, but I’m pretty sure a more natural, greenish (ie, the other plants) background would have done wonders to your shots other than that dull-white studio-like one. It is such that at first look, I thought it was an overexposed sky.

    Nilson, thanks for your comment. As I mentioned, I thought it might be fun to try something different. I’d never shot flowers with flash before. Maybe next time I’ll try a more natural looking background and see how that goes. At any rate, I hope that I’ve inspired you to try something different and experiment with your own photography. Thanks for reading! -Dan

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
