iPhone Macro of Small Yellow Flower by Jerry Hug, APSA

May 2022 - iPhone Macro of Small Yellow Flower

About the Image(s)

I shot the image on an iPhone 13 pro Max that has an automatic Macro mode when getting very close.
(About 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.) This flower was in a table display for my wife Carol. The total size of the flower was
about 2 inches across. I added a toned down watermark
So as to not distract from the image. Jerry

Nice work. If you can't shoot at the golden hour, find a golden flower! Your image and comments sent me to my Welby book to be sure how close one can get with the 12 Pro. Answer, 3 inches. So the 13 has an advantage other than video capability! Nice to know. Thanks   Posted: 05/06/2022 10:40:00

This photo shows one method of photographing flowers and that is moving in close. Using Jerry's method will make your images much better than most flower photos. Good job Jerry and thanks for sharing your method. Nice image.   Posted: 05/06/2022 12:18:08

This close up allows the viewer to enjoy the details of the flower. The colors are bright and cheery, and your center-avoided composition makes it interesting. There's a starburst effect that I suppose is due to lens distortion from the close position, but it isn't a problem. Nice creative shot.

This is a beautiful macro of the tiny flower. I like that you composed it with the center of the flower toward the right side. Nice detail. Thanks for showing what the macro lens can do on the high end phone.   Posted: 05/09/2022 21:29:32

Unique and creative perspective of small 2 inch flower making it seem larger and dramatic. Yellow petals sharp just wish green in center of photo could be more detailed . Would Snapseed's detail tool give more detail in this area?   Posted: 05/14/2022 10:12:47
