Photo Monday – Big Flowers

Still experimenting with my macro lens and I happened to have some brand new flowers.  I took them to a well lit spot and snapped away.  Only when you get close, there’s a lot less light.  I went up in ISO and down to a darker exposure but I have to face it.  I need to do this on a tripod until I can get one of those ring flashes.  These are the ones that didn’t suffer from camera shake.  The focus is a bit soft.  I think that, since I’m so close to my subject, I need to narrow the aperture a lot more to have a sharp close up image.  But then, the exposure takes longer.

I’m breaking out the tripod next time.  Promise.
