Living where I do I have to make an effort to go out and take a drive in to the countryside to capture photos of wild flowers, and with this being less than convenient I have to admit that I don’t often take photos of flowers.
It’s a shame really (although I only have myself to blame) because when I am wandering around the countryside with my camera snapping images of flowers I really do enjoy it, and the escapism and being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is rejuvenating. Thinking about it, I really should make more of an effort and do it more regularly…….
All of the flowers images above are available to buy as prints, posters, canvases etc. through my Fine Art America site, so if you think one of them would look good on a wall somewhere in your house, or the house of someone you know you can buy a copy for little money.
The following flower photos were all taken with an old Canon 450d, and whilst it is a dinosaur of a camera and was replaced with a newer entry level dslr camera many years ago now, I am happy with the images and think the 12.1 MP 450d has done a good job. The lens used to take the photos was a Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens (not theL series f2.8L IS).
I didn’t have a ring flash or any speed light with me at the time, so I had to rely on natural light. Being in the height of the summer the amount of light wasn’t an issue, there was plenty of it, but the sun was out resulting in high contrast and some pretty tricky lighting conditions to deal with.
