This is such a simple shoot - but I really struggled with it
for some reason, and am still not completely satisfied. I had
trouble with the highlights on the petals blowing out.
They are not even really white since the flower is wilted.
I started out with natural window light and added light, and ended
up with almost no light on the subject and -2 EC, and still I could
not completely recover the highlights in the conversion. There
was no indication of a problem in the historgram and no blinking
black dots - but yet no detail was captured on the highlights.
What could I have done differently?
