I am currently using all kind of techniques to photograph Spring flowers. In this image I used a wide open 50mm lens to create a very shallow depths of field. I got the center of the yellow flower sharp and I enhanced the sharpness just in the center in post production to create an even larger contrast. I addition I applied a painting filter on an extra layer to blur the rest of the image just a little bit.
Enjoy and keep on photographing!
This blog is about ideas and techniques. We share and we challenge each other to photograph and to photograph again and to start all over again. Here is a cool idea. Use a little glass ball and start photographing. You will see the world differently and you will have some fun!
Enjoy the image and keep on photographing!
Water is precious in California. We were happy about the rain last night. It was not very much but it cleared the air somewhat. I noticed the beautiful light this morning and I decided to photograph the rose in my front yard. I used a white reflector to illuminate the rose from the bottom.
Enjoy and keep on working on your images!
