I’m still practicing with my macro lens and tonight I worked on some red Gerbera Daisies. I tried using different apertures, shutter speeds, and distances from the subject. One thing I have learned is that the macro lens has a very shallow depth of field, even with a small aperture.
I wanted to use natural light so I took these on our front porch. It was raining/snowing all day today so there was a nice, soft lighting. We’re supposed to have rain and/or snow again tomorrow and I have more flowers to shoot so I’ll get more practice in.
