Week 6: Theme - Still Life: Flowers

by Tracylynn Seeger February. 09, 2011 2354 views

No flowers in my garden yet, so I bought some from the supermarket. I chose this variety because I love the way the edges of the petals are colored. Up close the petals have an iridescent shine, but I chose to move the camera back so I could include the whole flower for this shot.

Kit & setup:
Nikon D40 camera on a tripod
85mm macro lens
Indoors, lit by incandescent lights

Post editing:
I corrected the white balance and adjusted the lighting levels in Photoshop Elements 8.

EXIF Data:
Exposure 4.50 sec
Aperture f/36
Focal Length 85 mm
ISO Speed 400

Beautiful. I like your choice of simple background - it emphasises the beauty of the flower.
