I wanted to make sure I captured this rose I gave my Wife last week for Valentines Day before it wilted. Times like this call for hauling out the 5x7 large format film camera and the big, sharp Repromaster process lens.
Burke and James 5x7 large format film camera.
Repromaster 213mm F9 1:1 process lens. This is a shutter-less barrel lens.

F45 in darkened room with six pops of a Alien Bees B800 strobe @ full power with snoot to light the rose.
