A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday – 2
Last Sunday, I posted a simple flower for a Sunday post, and I thought I’d do that again.
I took this flower about two weeks ago. I was on my photo walk, and I saw some flowers in front of a house, so I started shooting. The woman who owned the house came out and offered for me to come into her yard to shoot some photos, so I did.
I showed this flower to a friend and she loved it. She said it had a spiritual feel to it, with the light in the center. She wondered if I had Photoshopped that, which I hadn’t. This is a natural shot from the camera.
This Morning Glory was shot with my Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro lens at f/11. Macro lenses require a different thinking about apertures (f stop). An f/11 on a normal lens, say a 35 mm lens, would be pretty sharp , but as you can see, in this photo, f/11 on a macro lens still gives you a pretty narrow DOF (focus). I did a shot at f/22, but the background was more in focus (but still out of focus), and I just thought it took away from the soft feeling of the photo, which I like.
So for a Sunday, todays flower. Have a great day, everyone!
