p365 – #23 cactus

p365 – #23 cactus, originally uploaded by pro_cabales.

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

UPDATE: I figured that I should have the shot using Auto (without flash) uploaded as well for future reference.
