Well, it is Saturday night, minutes before midnight, fun is being had, and the blog shot is still going to get posted. How cool is that?
This shot is one I have waited on for a while. I acquired some extension tubes that allowed me to get close enough to the subject to do this shot. I was shooting the 24-70mm lens with a few extension tubes on. I lit it with my 550EX with a mild cyan gel filter that I bounced off a white card about 3 feet from the subject. I think it worked just fine.
