Daisies In The Wind


Daisies In The Wind

When everything won’t keep still for a perfectly sharp picture, take an unsharp picture! Actually I made it even less sharp by going for the slowest shutter speed that I could get. First I set the ISO to Low 1.0 a full stop below the in spec minimum of 200 ISO but I wanted to limit the depth of field by using an f/2.8 aperture.  In the available light that morning, the shutter speed should have been about 1/800 sec, which would have stopped most things, but I used a Singh-Ray Vari-N-Duo filter to reduce the light getting to the sensor and increasing the time my shutter was open. So at 1/25 sec you see some nice movement in the flower heads.

In the best light…
