A setup done with two flashes: the main light was on camera right, my Simock E300 studio strobe reflected from a white umbrella at 1/4 of its maximum output. Then I had my compact Yongnuo YN-460II flash left of camera and slightly behind the objects as a kind of rim light, with 1/16 of its maximum power. I used apertures between f=5,6 and f=6,3, depending on the distance of the flashes to the objects which weren’t all of the same height.
After the basic setup and measuring, I first took a hair brush which was laying around somewhere. Cropped it into 16:9 format:

After that, I took a photo of my E-PL1 with the 45mm lens attached to it. Cropped this one square:
One of our spathifyllum plants is blooming again, so this one was next. It looked best in a 6×7 format:

All photos taken with my E-520 and the Zuiko Digital 2.0 50mm Macro lens. Thanks for viewing.
