Madison Indiana Photography

“Black & White Mum”

I thought I might bore you with one more mum shot, this one had a light color so I thought it might be better off with a conversion,  I shot this one as close as I could get and isolated it away from the other blooms.  It was shot at f/16 with a 14 second exposure,  the light was a little lacking and I didn’t want to use flash hence the long exposure, and my iso was set at 125.  I got a lot of traction out of these little mums they were definitely worth the price I paid for them, I probably shot well over 200 images and kept what I thought were 20 “keepers”,  all were shot on my front porch and I was out ten bucks for my subject.  It’s nice when you can get nice shots from the comfort of your own home.

  7. Thanks for all the comments folks, I am hoping to skip out of work tomorrow for a little flower photography if all goes well.

  8. I like the texture in the petals (caused by pollen? the actual texture of the petals?) not sure but I like it.

  9. Enough of the flowers, it’s football season for godsake’s man. Only kidding, knowing that your team had a late-night victory last night. If you can do this much with an admittedly boring mum, I am not sending you out to the Marquesas or Tortugas this winter where there is a plethora of wild orchids and other exotic (weird) plants.

  10. I love B&W! Have I ever said that?:) I think it teaches us to really see. Very nice pic Bernie. I feel like I can see the flower bursting open.
