This photo was taken using indoor window light only at 15 seconds at f16 iso 100. I'm trying to learn how to use the manual mode in my camera and finding that I'm probably getting somewhat smarter than the meter. It was getting pretty dark out at 5:45 edst pm and a cloudy/rainy evening. I'm finding it both fun and interesting using the manual mode and getting results I like. I 'm supprised at the brilliance of the petals. Comments are welcome btw.

For me, this has worked very well....excellent detail and petal texture recorded. I do a lot of shots using available daylight only indoors, although I tend to not to use manual but have learned to what extent I need to override the settings the camera chooses. At the end of the day, it's whatever method works for you, and it has worked very nicely in this instance, Bill.

Impressive stuff. I usually go for a black background, but I think, following this, I may try a few white. Great shot, colours, contrast and details all superbly captured. Get's my vote!

Hi Bill, this is truly a fantastic shot fine details of the petals and texture but it would have been come up more if you would have used a black background.. Excellent nevertheless.

The other lilly I posted does indeed hve a black background and you're correct that it really does make the flower stand out beautifully. Thank you all for your nice comments

Take a look at the online DOF tool at dofmaster.com. This will provide you with great information on the relationship between aperture and focal length, and will do so specifically for your camera and lens.

You will find that you may not need to use such a small aperture at the focal length you used. It looks like you have the background equally as in focus as the flower, so you should try to avoid this be either moving the flower as far as possible from the background, or use a larger aperture (smaller number).

Good work using manual mode, - its the only way to go with shots like this, - as is manual focusing, so give that a try also.



regards


Willie
