Photographing geraniums

     I'd be interested in hearing any tips any list members might have on
getting good photographs of (1) flower heads, and (2) whole specimen plants
of geraniums.  My main interest is zonals, if that helps narrow it down.
These are not the easiest things to photograph effectively.  In my opinion,
the greatest problems with the usual images (for example, some of those on
the web, from various specialists and nurseries) tend to include:  areas of
deep shade within the flower head, uneven lighting, parts of the picture out
of focus (i.e., poor depth of field -- although maybe throwing part of the
image out of focus is a way to make a single branch or umbel stand out), and
distracting backgrounds.

     I mostly take color slides, with a old war-horse Canon A-1 and a 50 mm
macro lens -- but any advice on other equipment would be welcome as well.
Any help on a combination of film type and lighting that would record the
colors in a lifelike way would be especially great.

Thanks to all,

Barry Roth
