We used to have some other plants in the apartment but since, sometimes, June and I take week-long vacations, only this one survived… 😦
I practiced some light source mixing to take this one. I manually pre-focused on the cactus and did a spot metering on the background to avoid overexposing it.
Spot meter on background, -2/3 exposure value, -2 on flash output (to soften light and shadows). P mode used ISO 1/80, 1/60 shutter speed @ f/2.5
