Pictures of flowers
I went to a class on flower photography today. Held at the Linnaes Teaching Garden at Woodland Hills Park in Tulsa. I was a bit disappointed because the flowers were not in bloom yet so there was little to photograph. I did see 1.
Fear the beard? No, not in this case. Another multiframe composite Iris picture from my garden this summer.
This is another multiframe compilation of a bearded Iris from my garden. I like Its luminosity. Just seems to glow.
This is a vertical panorama of a red gladiola from 16 frames. What can I say I like flowers. I have always been interested in macro and micro photography. Maybe I will graduate to Insects or microbes next. Actually I am going to experiment with focus stacked panoramas of flower blooms which are just a little too big for the depth of field of my lens.
This is another image of a Red Cladiola. I like this one because of its stark black background.
I have a liking for Glads as well as Irises and have a bunch of them in my home garden as well. This one is especially striking.
I find myself fascinated by the bearded Iris. So much so that I have imported a group to my garden and I photograph them regularly. I have not gotten around to posting them on line though. Here is a nice one. Its a composite of 37 macro images of the blossom.
A bearded Iris from my garden. I like the complexity of these flowers. I am finding out that I also like the Blue Ones better than the colors of some I have purchased.
