I just returned from a great one week vacation in Costa Rica with many great images.

This photo was taken without the use of multiflash or setup. I took it handheld with natural light, flower and BG in a backyard of a house near the Laguna Del Lagarto Lodge.

D750 | 300mm f2.8 w/ 1.4x TC
f/4 | 1/1600s | ISO 1250 | No Flash

This is awesome. I have to say, I prefer this look than the ones with flash. Looks way more natural. Nicely done.
