Madison Indiana Photography

“Electric Blue”

Shot of a very up close and personal Iris, shot this at extremely shallow 2.8 and tried to use the stamens as a focus point, I really liked how the blue and the colors of the stamen seemed to pop off the screen. This is another one that looks real nice blown up to around 13×19. Thanks for taking a look.

  3. How bout dat mohawk? Beautiful photo Bernie. Shots like this really help us to fully appreciate these beautiful flowers. The thing I love about digital is the things you see a lot of the times when you get back to the studio and put the images on screen. It blows me away! Beautiful pic Bernie! Is this the one you were telling me about?

  4. Thats the one Boyd, my basic philosophy is to shoot a ton of images on a subject and do my editing back in my office, I had set the camera to bracket and shot about 50 shots of this one image. After a lot of time with my nose stuck to the monitor I came up with this shot, I spend way more time behind the computer now but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  6. You got skillz. I can only imagine what you may pull off if we find some birds of paradise or wild orchids in bloom upon your arrival. We are firing up the boat this weekend in case you want to try to macro barracuda teeth. Hehe.

  7. Gorgeous. When I think of iris, I think of my grandmother..and my mother. My grandmother used to enter hers in contests and we have many metals from the 1960’s for her blooms.

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. It’s certainly a different viewpoint, Bernie! Not something I’ve seen previously with irises. ‘Dat mohawk’ is a winner, such detail and fine lighting. Love it! ;o)

  11. That is fabulous – it reminds me more of deep ocean water… it’s lovely. You know what it is but just barely.

  16. Bernie, I don’t know how I missed this amazing floral macro before. It is rich in color and absolutely stunning! I’ve tried many times to photograph irises up close, but they seem so shiny and the light never cooperates. I don’t call a shot perfect very often, but I can’t imagine how you could have captured it more beautifully.

    Your work is a blessing to viewers!
