Good evening. This is a little series of photos of a rose from my garden named after one of my favorite artists. Dale Chihuly. I got a new macro lens for my camera and decided to try it out. Now I have a lot more studying to do. Thanks for looking. Sharon
Good morning and thank you Ira. I had fun playing with my new lens. I did think it would be easier to get closer than it turned out to be. Thanks again for the nice comment. Sharon
nice play with depth of field f3.5 is small so small field of focus you will note light becomes the next problem as you open up but its no problem on a tripod. enough preaching. love the colours in the flower smell??? rose has to have a smell. steve
Hi Steve. Thanks for the comments. I am learning about depth of field. I bought a macro lens, thinking I could just get really close and take a picture. Little did I know. Speaking of roses. I love them terribly. I also think a rose has to have a great smell or what is the use. This one is great with a lemon scent. It you look at the center of this rose, in another photo, it looks like granular sugar. I wish to thank you for all your help Steve. I just got a tripod, I think it will help tremendously. Sharon
Sharon you must try all i have said will make you photos better the faster you get away from pointand shoot. or as my father says it will take you 1000 photo to learn how to take a photo. 1000 in a week you learn fast in 10 years you never learn. i would get you camera time and GO PLAY with the setting and just see what they all mean. steve
Hi Steve. That is exactly what I am going to do. I have always been the kind to over-think everything and want things instantly. I shall overcome my inadequateness. I must remember Baby steps. Thanks again, Sharon
Perfect shot Sharon. I wish my roses were like this one! Very good indeed :-)
Good evening David and Aleksolo. I like this flower because it is named after one of my favorite artists Dale Chihuly. He is a brilliant glass blower. If you ever have the opportunity to see an exhibit of his, it is well worth it. Sharon
Nice picture. I just saw a Chihuly exhibit. Pictures are here.
Good morning Art. I am so glad that you got to see a Chihuly Exhibit. I just think he is amazing. I have seen a few indoor exhibits but never in the outdoors. I bet it was spectacular in person. I do not think most people know who he is but I have followed his life and work for 20+ years. Blowing glass and stained glass are two more of the wishes I have to learn. Just not enough hours in the day. I see you have been up and about for many hours already this morning. I hope you are off taking photos. By the way, I love your other website. I will have to explore it more. The site looks very interesting. Have a great weekend. Sharon
Excellent macro image! Like 1!
Happy New Year, Manfred
Thank you Manfred. Wishing you a marvelous 2011
