Morning Glory 04

Morning Glory 04

After photographing Morning glories for a while I discovered that I like the images with a shallow depths of field a lot better than the one with large f stops. In this image I used a 180m macro lens with f4.5. My eyes automatically wander to the sharp edge of the blossom. I also like the color contrast between the white blossom and the red blurred background.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!

Coming back from Europe I found a whole bunch of wild Morning Glories growing in my backyard. I thought that is an opportunity for a nice photographic exercise. I believe they grow almost everywhere and if you can’t find them pick another flower. This exercise is about macro photography and depths of field. You will most likely use a tripod to get a clear image. Other considerations are wind and time of day or light condition. Photograph those flowers and create some exceptional great images!

I used my 180mm macro lens to create this image. I tried several f stops and settled for f8 in this image which gives me a very sharp edge of the flowers. Enjoy and have fun with this exercise!
