Late Summer Flowers
While visiting friends, I wandered their flower gardens and found a number of fine specimens. I found a brilliant lily in the full sun, by placing a shadow in the background, I was able to contrast the dark shadow and the bright stamens. The closeness required to fill the frame reduced the Depth of Field forcing me to focus on a few of the middle stamens.
A stunning red daylily also caught my eye. This time, I positioned the bloom in the shade against a background of sunlit greenery. This provided a fairly clean green background which naturally complimented the lily blossom.
Now is a great time to get out and get some great flower images.
In the best light…
