Roses, Macros and Light
Another day, another flower. I took a rose to the back porch and set the aperture to f22 on the macro lens to get a deep depth of field. Setting the aperture to such a small size of course lengthens the time of the exposure so I set the timer on the camera to reduce shake. While that was going off I grabbed a piece of black poster board to get rid of the distracting background and held it there while the exposure went off. With the other hand I painted the rose with light from a flashlight to brighten it more since it was an overcast day.
It was kind of fun to experiment. Get out and try something new and tell us how you did it. That is your challenge for this week.
Have a great weekend.
