A Sunday picture.
Something pretty and light-hearted.
A Swamp Lilly. As a friend calls them. That could be the correct name. Or, it could be a regional name.
They are hard to photograph. They are found in places where the backgrounds — mostly grasses — are dark. The flower is very light yellow. Balancing the two in any kind of light besides overcast and flat light is almost impossible.
You could use a flash, but I usually make pictures of this type on a dog walk.
The magic smart phone has a flash feature, but little dog miss is trying to go in one direction, me in another and… you get it. Time is of the essence.
I make the best picture that I can. Quickly. And, do the rest in post production. Sometimes, even that isn’t enough so I pull and push the picture in different direction. Hopefully, I make something a little unique and different.
Maybe if I went on dog walks with a real camera that might help. You know garbage in, garbage out. With a camera the inbound garbage could be better.
