This delicate little flower begins to arrive in late spring and last through summer. For me, it’s a symbol of summer.
This may be one of the cleanest captures that I’ve made of them since I’ve been photographing them.
I think that’s because the light was muted which kept the exposure simple. Often, I photograph them strongly backlighted.
The creates a whole host of problems.
Since I try not to move my subjects around and photograph them how I find them, I have to deal with their quirks after the fact.
It’s Sunday so I’ll give you a break from my commentary about the state of the world. You should always remember whatever I write about that is just my opinion.
Some call this an Iris. I cannot find it in my big book of flowers. So, I’ll go with Iris.
As I mentioned on the left side, the light was muted so the exposure was easy.
That made post production simple.
The biggest issue was making sure a flower so translucent as this held enough yellow so that you could view it accurately.
I’ll talk about accurately v creative intent in another post.
