Day 68 – Crocuses Revisited

Day 55 – a touch of sunshine – I photographed some yellow crocus at the end of the road … today I visited the same patch of ground, experimented with camera angles using my nifty 50 lens and photographed these purple crocuses in the same spot. I never knew that the purple ones flowered later – so instead of a photography tip today… i discovered gardening advice 🙂

ISO 400, 1/40 sec, F10 From above and the grass is too much in focus I think.

My personal favorite is the last photo I took – below… I like the shallow depth of field and how the flowers stand out amongst the grass, they look small, fragile and soft….  I do also like the direct downwards photo too and I think you could get an interesting effect with that with flowers that had a longer stem… so the depth could be thrown more easily, or with a macro lens.

ISO400, F2.8, 1/1000sec - Side angle of the crocuses, you can no longer see the orange in the centre
