Garston Wood Snowdrops

As you may have guessed from the title this post is all about Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) found within Garston Wood near Sixpenny Handley in Dorset.

These were shot back in Feb of this year using my Olympus EM5 Mark II and Olympus 60mm F2.8 lens mounted on the Manfrotto Pixi Evo 2 Mini Tripod.

I also experimented with directional LED lighting, using the Amaran Aputure LED light.

Then for these last few I continued to use the LED lighting but also added different coloured cards behind the snowdrops.
