Bougainvillae (36850014)

LARGE

These beauties bloom so well in very bright full sun. Doing a macro shoot under the hot burning tropical sun with such bright viewfinders was so blinding to the eye. And the good thing is you don't need tripods :-)

 

At first I thought it was something wrong with the lightmeter on my R6, after seeing the red channel so overly exposed after scanning. However, it turned out that this negative has a very heavy red channel bias, hence scanning with Adobe RGB colour profile (which has higher latitude) is the best solution to not have the red channel over exposed.

 

Gears: Leica R6, Leica Summicron-R 35mm F/2.0, Kodak Ultramax 400

Location: My backyard, Gong Badak, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia
