“Coneflower Art”

I shot this coneflower extremely shallow, just trying to emphasize the colors and bring enough form to give you an idea what the flower is, once again my favorite way to shoot flowers. This one was actually shot outside and not inside my basement, it has been so dry this summer most the flowers never really looked good so I have been making a few trips to the local florist hoping to get a few good subjects.

Shot at f/2.8, 1/60 second at iso 160. I also added a very slight surface blur to this because it had some age spots on it and I was too lazy to clone them out 🙂

    Bernie, I like how the eye naturally travels up those long petals to the focal point there in the center. Your macros have really evolved into something beautiful! I can imagine this matted and framed in large format, can’t you?

    Beautiful colors & form – I like the slight blur too.

    Gotta get me some lighting (which I need anyways to photograph the jewelry my girlfriend is making) and flowers and play with at-home macro photography one of these days!
