ORANGE FLOWERS by Margaret Sprott, APSA

October 2021 - ORANGE FLOWERS

About the Image(s)

This was taken in July, 2020 on a camera club field trip to an outdoor sculpture garden where we could wear masks and social distance. I used my Nikon 5300 with an 18-400mm lens on a tripod. I liked my flowers more than any of the sculpture shots I got. The ISO was 400 and I shot it at 1/250 second at f 13. I would have liked to use vignettes on all 4 corners but I don't remember how.
We are getting ready to fly to SD for the Photo Festival which is why I am late.

Margaret, Like your control of the depth of field of the background being out of focus. Nice vibrant colors. Well done.   Posted: 10/04/2021 06:57:18

It is hard to work with midday light. This is well done. You might want to bring a diffuser to put the flower in "shade". It will yield more vibrant color and reduce the shadows. Nice image,   Posted: 10/04/2021 12:39:34

Do you always have a diffuser with you? It's not something I usually have with me but it is a good idea. Thanks!   Posted: 10/04/2021 20:37:06

I always have a hat, as I am bald and don't like sunburns. It serves the purpose. A paper towel will do for small things.   Posted: 10/04/2021 23:58:35

This image is lovely. Love the bright colors. And, Lloyd how about a lesson in using a diffuser. Feel free to go to the bulletin board and offer us all some hints, or at least for me who has never used one. Thanks.   Posted: 10/09/2021 14:55:47
