When you are photographing a flower in front lighting conditions, the result can be unflattering. In this video, professional photographer Tony Sweet uses a diffusion disk to overcome this problem. With a 105 macro lens, he fills the frame with the beautiful white flower including the stamen. He holds the diffusion disk between the sunlight and the flower. This creates a soft glow and results in a lovely image. You will also learn how to add a reflector to push the sunlight back onto the flower and give your image depth. Join Tony Sweet as hee solves the issue of front lighting with the diffusion disk and the reflector.
