Orange Hibiscus, Longwood Gardens Kennett Square, PA
I often visit gardens on conservatories to photograph flowers. Most of the time, they do not allow tripods, so I just use my twin flashes or a ring light as this allows me to achieve the depth of field I want and still let me hand hold. I walked through the conservatory full of many hibiscuses and settled on the one as the petals were on the same focal plane as the stigma. Having the flash units at the front of the lens allows me to get very tight on my subjects.
