I bought these fab red and gold gerberas at the grocery store the other day with full intentions of taking some pix of said same flowers. Well, one thing led to another and I did not get around to picture taking and now they are on their second to last legs so I figured it was do or die today!
I wanted ALL the flower in all it’s glory, so tripod, macro lens, ambient light, and cranked the aperture up (or down depending on how you view things) to get a nice long exposure and max depth of field. Ubber pretty despite the startings of crispy edges – which is totally my fault for waiting.
This is pretty well the SOOC image with a little sharpening.
THEN of course I had to fiddle…..
The portrait “pano” format is one that is often forgotten but actually presents quite well and looks really good when it’s printed up. Also makes for nice Moo cards and gift tags!
