Day 80: Flower Photography

I’m interrupting Bailey’s blog with some flowers instead of dogs today.

I originally went outside to photograph a small flower which had popped up in a crack in our driveway.  I noticed it this morning when I took Bailey out to go the bathroom, but the bud had closed up again since this morning.  Instead, I decided to take some photos of the rose bushes and other flowers in our yard that had recently bloomed.

There is something I love about photographing flowers at f/1.4 and the intense bokeh that you get at this setting.   Also, the first pink flowers may look like I really increased the saturation in the photos, but no, those are completely natural colors, and they really are that vibrant in person.

Your regular scheduled Bailey photos will resume tomorrow.

  1. Well if we can’t see a Bailey photo, flowers are the next best thing :) I love doing nature photography, it’s amazing how many beautiful details there are that go unnoticed by most people. The colors are spectacular and need no enhancement, particularly after a light rain.

    See ya tomorrow, Bailey! :D

  2. Beautiful, Kristen!

  3. I really can look at these flowers forever. I love the bleeding hearts, my sister gardens I guess I should post some of the pictures of her garden. :) Amazing photos today :)

  4. In addition to Oscar, my next favorite subject to photograph is flowers. I’m so glad they’re inanimate objects so I don’t have to worry about blurry pictures like I do with Oscar. :P

  5. so pretty. My roses wont look like that for at least two more weeks. :)

  6. I love bleeding hearts. My mom always had a lot of them in her garden.

  7. Beautiful : ) Thanks for the spring flower fix. (Spring isn’t as exciting here in LA .)

    I was looking forward to enjoying the flowers at my parents place in Ohio this weekend, but a big hail storm passed through right before I got there . . . There is some crazy weather going on in the midwest these days!

  8. Beautiful photos! I especially love the last one!
