"For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity or perception to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication." Friedrich Nietzsche

WORKING WITH FLOWERS

With this beautiful weather we're having I'm starting to work the gardens and flowers around the house.  The two posted images are from a couple of potted flowers that are on the front porch today. The calas I'll take in for the evening. 


The light on the porch was perfect. Cloudy but bright day. Just a touch of sun.



Top image: 50mm lens (DX) with a +4 close up glass. ISO 100, f5.6, 1/25th ss,-0.7 exp comp.
Bottom image: same except 1/80th ss and no exp comp.
Camera was in manual mode with aperture priority of f5.6, manual focus. Cable release for shutter.

Click image for isolation.
Thanks for stopping by.
