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.
One can’t control the change in weather, but one can control the shoot! The day this photograph was taken started out sunny, warm with no breeze. Quickly it turned incredibly windy. I was all set to pack it in when I decided to just go with it! Knowing that the odds were very slim of capturing a completely sharp image, or any decent image for that matter. I set the shutter speed to 1/320 sec. to compensate for the flower’s movement by the wind. Then I watched the flower petals rise and sway, picked a focal point, and had some fun!
