Re: Plane flattening: Ferns

The way in which a ring-flash can flatten perspective can be readily seen here. This is a birds-eye view of a fern plant. Its fronds contain a conical volume of space which would be seen if shot under natural light. With the ring-flash adapter, they all appear flattened and pressed onto the picture plane.

Hi Jeff .... you have right , the effect is quite evident here and i can understand your interest in this , knowing your preference for having in the shots great Dof , this ring flash can really give something more to make the various planes/layers coming together and  not rendering them in a harsh way ..... now i hope you are not becoming a nature photographer as i quite like this composition  

Best , Gianluca
