Since I am in the mood to post something, here is another view of some of the Bloodroot images I got earlier this week, with this one I got extremely close to the bloom itself and didn’t particularly go after the whole flower. With shots like this you better make sure you have a sturdy tripod and a lot of patience which I only have one of, would you like to guess which one, or you could be in for a tough time shooting these little gems.
When I shot this one I had to stand along a hillside so I could lower my tripod to within 8-10 inches of the bloom itself which was no easy task from where I was standing. But if you are after a shot like this you are going to have to get down and dirty with your subject if you want to get a quality shot, wildflowers are never easy and I think I like it that way !!
Positioning is just one of the many problems you deal with, throw in the wind, rain,too much light or too little, cold, heat… you get my drift by now. All these things make wildflowers a joy as well as pain to shoot, but when you get that shot you definitely feel like you have accomplished something special.
If you go out in search of that perfect wildflower shot this spring bring a good tripod and a bit of patience and luck and just enjoy the experience it is definitely worth the effort !!
Thanks for stopping by and once again click on the image for the better view it is worth it.
