Lily macro shots

While having been on the topic of flowers recently, I thought I would post these.

A while ago, a mentor in our Camera Club pointed out what should have been obvious, that is if you get in really close with your flashgun, then it actually produces a fairly diffused light on a small macro subject like a flower, and that the subject can also provide its own built in reflectors.  I think these two slightly abstract Lily shots demonstrate this quite well with the absence of shadows.  Thanks Keith!

Lily Macro 2

Lily Macro 3

For both these shots an FL50R flashgun was remotely triggered from my Olympus E-30 with 50mm prime macro, whilst held as close to the subject as possible without being in the frame.
