Fantastic shot!!! Thanks for the info, too. How did you set the white balance? Did you have to adjust in post? This takes a lot of imagination, but I might give it a shot one day, if you don’t mind.

I guess its OK for you to try Ken. 🙂
I set my Nikon White Balance to the little light bulb symbol, I’m thinking that’s ‘incandescent’. Lightroom shows it as shot at 2950 K.. The colors of the flowers looked accurate so I let it be. The little old fashioned penlight I was using is one of those old school weak things with a tiny light bulb (not LED). I fashioned a little snoot for it by wrapping electrical tape around the business end, to get a tighter beam. Really it’s just trial and error and luck.
