Experimenting

I don't remember where but I came across a link recently that I found interesting. It was Advanced Tips for tack sharp images. I read the article and naturally had to go out and play. I don't know if my images were any better or not but I had fun. My camera doesn't appear to be set up the same way as the one used in the article so I just winged it and set out to see what I would get.
On that particular day I chose my white iris as my subject



Good thing I did my experiment when I did because these guys are now all shriveled up and done for the year.

It's just beautiful and I can't tell that you did anything to it, it looks like straight out of the camera.

Pat said...

They are pin sharp - and very beautiful xx

You always find these amazing photo enhancing tools, Ann!
Thanks for sharing :)

Nicely done! In reader, the 1st pic (as a very small icon) looked like a deer (at least to me, grin). What a surprise when I opened the post to see it was a beautiful Iris! LOL. And yes, thanks for the tips. The shots are incredible. Love the yellow "fuzz" detail. (Nice technical term, don't you think?)

I think your experimenting produced a couple of beautiful images!!! I LOVE iris. As with you, I'm sure you say the same thing...."wish their blossoms would last longer in the season".

Gorgeous Ann.

darn you ANN!!! you know i will have to read this and try it. and i did work, they are TACK SHARP and very beautiful. that is why photography is good, the flowers are gone but the beauty still lingers and the photos jog your memory of them.again DARN you Ann....sorry Duke cover your little ears

Those are great tips and your photos turned out sharp! One has to be mindful of shutter speed, aperture setting, and focal length too. For example, the longer the focal length, the more speed is needed for a hand-held shot to remain sharp. And practice, practice, practice helps you know what to do automatically when a scene presents itself!

The pictures are beautiful although I can't tell that you did anything to it. Although the yellow fuzzy is very sharp.

I've not touched a camera in years. It's a good thing too as I take horrible pictures. Hubby does all the photography.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Lovely shots, that camera can be a tool to keep on learning with.

Rose said...

Interesting technique! The photos are very sharp. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! It came out great! I have got to get a good camera. All we have is one of those point-and-shoot things. I know I am missing out on a bunch of great photos, because our camera just can't seem to take close-up, focused pictures.
Oh well, some day :)

Those photos are very sharp. I wish irises lasted longer too. They remind me of my grandma because she always had beautiful purple ones.

Erika said...

Nice. I like how I can see that fuzzy yellow stuff.
I need to invest in a better camera--I have such a hard time getting this one to focus on a spot and soften the background.

Haddock said...

They do look sharp, especially the white petals.
Life is nothing but experimenting. And sometimes we come out with some wonderful results.

Reeni said...

Those are gorgeous! I love when the background is all blurry.

Chatty Crone said...

That second one is so sharp and clean and beautiful.

love, sandie

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Ann, Love that white Iris. Maybe --if it's a reblooming one--it will bloom again... We love our re-bloomers.
Hugs,
Betsy

Nice and crisp!
I read that article too....haven't played with and applied it to my camera yet.

SweetMarie said...

Very crisp!

Catherine said...

They don't last long do they? I'm glad you captured them!
xo Catherine

I think I have to go read that article.

Donna said...

So pretty! Super sharp!

They are great sharp shots with a shalloW depth of field. I had to read the article too. So I will give it a go. I have used Al Servo before but only with moving subjects. DPS is a great website for photographers.
