Another Flower

I know it’s another flower, but, as I’m doing the whole close up photography thing I thought I’d put it up here, just to add some colour. This is a house plant that got the take it outside and photograph from below treatment. Unfortunately, due to the wind I couldn’t get as large a depth of field as I would have liked. At any rate my Olympus C-8080 WZ only goes to F8, so the shallow depth of field is inevitable with macro shots on this camera.

Photograph

iris

Having read a photography magazine about photographing flowers I went into the garden and found this iris. I stuck it in a vase and photographed it from underneath outside in daylight.

I do like the contrast between the white of the flower and the blue sky, and also the simplicity of the sky. Usually when taking flower photos the surrounding leaves/branches etc. distract. The sky makes a nice clean backdrop.
