that was taken a few days ago.
Since I wasn't sure what to shoot, er...photograph,
I decided to take another look at what I had available....
another lens, a different angle and you get a different looking photo!
I swapped lenses and used the
Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II for this photo.
I've had this lens for about 4 months, but
really haven't used it.
The lens is shorter than the kit lens and made
the camera feel different...lighter, I guess.
Of course, once I found my subject to photograph,
and had the camera focused
the wind picked up and the petals were fluttering,
with the whole flower swaying to and fro.
I held the rose to steady it once the
wind died down and snapped a few photos.
After attempting a few photos of the front of the flower,
I found that the back of the rose was more interesting.
with the details of the texture of the petals
and how they curled backwards .
I also liked the bokeh effect of the light through the leaves
in the background. The petals seem soft and touchable,
even on the computer screen!
I'm glad that I was able to take some time to compose
the photo, otherwise, I may have never thought
to try a different point of view.
This photo is SOOC (straight out of the camera),
except to scale it down.
