Unfortunately, each time it was dry enough outside to photograph these beauties in my front yard, it was very windy, which does not provide the optimal conditions for floral photography.
Actually, I’ve decided that I’m going to have to get myself a macro lens because I really do enjoy this type of photography and have had really lack luster results for the most part.
Here are a few more examples. While the flowers themselves are lovely subjects, the focus is very soft. The peony was taken with my 1.4 / 50mm but these were taken with my “walk about lens” 17-85mm.
Suggestions in this area would be greatly encouraged. 🙂
