Unbelievable that it is December 1st today. OMG time is going at WARP speed it seems. I have a bunch of flower images for you to look at from my Reiman Gardens shoot. When I say a bunch I mean there are several.
The question is do I show you images from worst to best? By saving the best for last do I so jaundice your vision of the flowers that you cannot appreciate the best of the group? Should I show the best first and by the time you get to the last image you may consider them all bad?
Or should I only show you my best three of the entire shoot? No I think I’ll just mix them up and let you judge each flower on its own merit. These images were captured with the Nikon D700 with an ISO setting of 200. I used a Tamron 90 mm macro lens fitted with a macro TTL ring flash. Shutter speed was a constant 1/60 sec with variable aperture values.
I took these images after I left the butterfly room. This was at an indoor garden but there were no butterflies around. I was talking to my friend Steve today and he use to live around the Ames area. He said when he was visiting the gardens there was no charge for entrance. I suspect the charge came when they became a Federal Butterfly Preserve. Anytime the government gets involved in anything it’s going to cost money.
There were some pretty exotic flowers in the garden. Some that I had never seen before. I think I enjoyed shooting the flowers as much as I did the butterflies. It was a lot easier to capture them. 🙂
Tomorrow night I have a big shoot in Clinton, Iowa. I will be making portraits from a woman’s event held at our bank. I did this last year and it was a lot of fun. This year promises to be bigger and better than every. I can’t wait.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
