Use Off-Camera Flash
A saguaro cactus offers up its yearly bloom along the Mount Lemmon Highway in Tucson, Arizona, where each Spring the large cactus can be seen flowering toward the end of April and through May. Mount Lemmon is an excellent area to take great springtime photos as its vegetation offers a wide variety from desert cactus to mountain top pinetrees. Deer, javelina, coyotes, and gila monsters make the mountain their home, which is in the Santa Catalina Mountain Range in the Northern part of Tucson.
Photo tip: Use your off camera flash to help illuminate a subject as was done here,even “painting” a subject with many flashes, and just because the daylight is gone, doesn′t mean you can′t stop taking pictures.
