Lighting Setup For Tabletop Flowers

Here is a setup that I used when photography some flowers. I wanted a white background. The flash helps with that. I had to stop down to f8 to get a slow enough shutter speed  to fire the flash properly. Anything above 1/250 sec would get the shutter in the way. I also used this setup for the focus stacking experiment I blogged about earlier. It worked well for that. The two 85W daylight fluorescent bulbs give good light. I am happy with the results and will use this setup again.
