Phloxy Lady II
I love to get down to chipmunk level to photograph flowers, but I’m not particularly fond of lying on my stomach. In my film days I shot with medium format cameras equipped with either waist level or prism finders which allowed the photographer to look down into the camera. This made for an extremely comfortable and stable shooting position, especially for shots like this. It took me 10 years of shooting with an SLR to realize that a right-angle finder might be nice (I’m a notoriously slow learner at times). So, I got one a few weeks ago and have rarely taken it off of the camera since. It’s also great for interiors as well, making it easier to shoot from a lower vantage point … one much more pleasing than standing eye level. They aren’t cheap (A few hundred dollars), but I’ve found it invaluable.
