    Great photos! I especially like the first photo. Can you share the lighting info on it? It looks like maybe High Speed sync with a diffused light (umbrella?) from an on-axis light from above the camera? :-)

    Love the reflection shots (and the rest of them) these are incredible. They look especially awesome against the black background of your blog.

    Thank you, everyone!

    Thomas – I used two off camera flash bodies sometimes with diffusers, sometimes without. I shot over 200 exposures and did not take notes. I *think* this one had two flashes with diffusers, slightly off-axis from camera (in both directions) to take the edge off any shadows. Looks like the one on the left is a little lower than subject and the one on the right is a little higher than subject.

    What lovely pictures. Thank you for sharing them. What is the name of the flower?

    Mary – this one is the night-blooming cereus (also queen of the night).
