Bradford Pear Blossom

March 25, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Spring 12 Flower 008 Last week's March Macro was shot at the same time as this Bradford Pear blossom, which is what I originally set out to shoot. There was a breeze outside and I really wanted more DOF which called for a smaller aperture and correspondingly slower shutter speed. But the wind was blowing and even though I upped the ISO I could not compensate for the breeze. So I cut a small cluster from the tree and brought the flower inside. I am always in awe of the beauty that a macro shot can reveal. Nikkor 85mm macro, f22, 1/2 sec, ISO800, manually focused using live view
