Flower Photography – Close Up

Sony 6000a with Canon Macro Lens: f/8; 1/250 sec; ISO 2500; 60mm

Normally I shoot most of my flower photographs in bright lit settings. This time I tried something new. It was evening and the room was lit with one dim lamp. By really increasing my ISO it picked up the variance of light illuminating the flower casting a sheen effect. Think I will try this more often. Would like to hear any suggestions for other indoor lighting. I don’t usually photograph indoors. But given it’s winter in the Midwest. I am desperate.

Photography – Before and After

In my photography club there was a before and after challenge. I submitted the 3 images above. But this time instead of using my desktop software programs, I decided to edit them using mobile apps. The Lightroom mobile app was used to edit the flower and monkey images. Snapseed was used to edit the waterfall. Would be curious to know how many of you use these apps.
