Well, I took a picture of my Ludwigia arcuata this afternoon with a cheap digital camera (FujiFilm FinePix A303). Not that great. :?

The L arcuata picture looks pretty good to me. With a more expensive digital camera you would just have to decrease the size to meet the reqiurements here and the picture would look no better.

I want to see pictures of your iron-satiated Rotala and Didiplis

That should do it....till I upload some more recent pictures *L*

These Cameras were taking with an Olympus C5050. No flash was used and only a couple of them used a tripod. Shots were taking in SuperMacro mode with various F-stops and Shutter speeds.

It would be nice if you all could post the equipment and photo settings with the shots. Any part or all of that information would be very interesting, considering the excellent quality of the shots.

FYI,

Fast shutter speed, Low aperture -> ~F8 and external flash will produce picture like one above. It will produce a "blast" effect, create a black surrounding and eliminate any light around the object.

Ghazanfar, do you add a black background using software?
I don't add it in. Most of my pictures have black backgrounds - by
using the flash from above the subject. However, if there's any
small spots etc that show up on the background, I'll usually
clean it up with Photoshop a bit.

Wow I really cant believe the quality of the photos you guys are posting!

I agree, how about some info on camera settings that you used on some of those shots everyone?

Thanks, that'll give me something to experiment with. It's going to be a while before I get an external flash as they're a little pricey.

Impressive!!! This collection of pics is amazing. Thank you all for posting them.

Art, could the profiles be set up so that people could enter camera information? It would be nice to have a brand, model, flash capabilities, and maybe lens add ons or particlular lens for those of you with DSLR. That way those of us who want to know those things wouldn't have to bug you for the info.

Eric, Giancarlo, and Tony, what kind of equipment are you using? I think I remember that Jay Luto is using a G2 with external flash and Ghazanfar is using a Sony 7x7? with external flash? Very impressive photography with good basic equipment.

Tony, is the substrate in the parva pic Eco-Complete? Nice pic - nice looking parva.

Regards,
Jay Reeves
