  • Day Lilies

    I was inspired by the beautiful flower pix posted by Mike4AU the other day.

    Here's some day lilies in my garden. These are just grab shots - all handheld.
    I'm using a Konica-Minolta Maxxum 5D DSLR with it's standard 18-70 zoom lens.
    I set the camera for aperture priority and set it wide open. I snuck in the rose bud at the last minute.

    Nice job, Al! Looks like you were shooting while the sun was blaring down on you. Keep posting!

        Those were taken in bright sunlight at about 5:30pm here in Michigan. Definitely not a high sun (well past the zenith).

        When you take your awesome flower shots, do you shoot handheld, or use a tripod? How do you get the black background?

          The 3 flower shots I posted the other day were all handheld. I prefer to use a tripod, but don't sometimes....just depends.

          Most of the black backgrounds are with black velvet draped over poster board. There are times when I use a flash to freeze a subject and often that will result in a black background, depending on the flash setting.

          Day in and day out, the best shots will come by using a tripod.

          Keep posting!
