David Suchoff specializes in macro photography of various plants, flowers, and other items in nature. He explains his process in capturing the beautifully complex!
ISO: 100 | SS: 1/125 SEC. | APERTURE: F/5.6 | FOCAL LENGTH: 120mm
I enjoy capturing the combination of simplicity and complexity that is found in nature. Color consistency plays a large part in the success of my images.
I use an Einstein™ E640 Flash Unit, controlled by a Cyber Commander™, with the 47” Octabox. The color mode of the Einstein™ is always used as it ensures that there is little variability in color temperature among the images within a stack.
I utilize a Fuji GFX50s attached to a Arca-Swiss Universalis II View Camera and a Schneider-Kreuznach 120mm/5.6 Apo-Macro digitar. The view camera is set on a Stackshot focus stacking rail, the number of images per stack is dictated by the magnification on sensor and the depth of focus I desire.
