go! - - Take Your Pic | Portfolio -

The Mi­das snail has turned his king­dom into gold and is gaz­ing upon the only re­main­ing thing of nat­u­ral beauty, which he knows he can’t touch… To make this scene, Mar­cus placed a flower in a shal­low dish of wa­ter with a golden silk dress­ing gown in the back­ground. To cre­ate the bokeh, he used a pane of glass with glit­ter on it. Oh, and let’s not for­get about Vin­cent!

HOW? Nikon D800, Nikkor 105 mm macro lens, shut­ter speed 1/100 sec­ond, aper­ture f9, ISO 100, with a tri­pod and three flashes with warm­ing fil­ters.
