A Zinnia with just two water drops photographed in our back yard with a textured background from Distressed Textures. I often see flowers photographed where the photographer took a spray bottle or something and added way to many water drops to the flower. Here, I decided to do the opposite and place just two on the flower. I am not opposed to someone adding all the water drops they like to a flower, but I do find I am much more attracted to the images with just a few, or even just one drop of water on the flower. Have a wonderful day.
A verse for the day:
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 1:9
Photographed west of Phoenix one morning in the spring of this year. We had lots of wildflowers this year, one of the beautiful things here in Arizona when we get enough rain. The flower in the lower left is called “brittlebush” and the cactus is the iconic Saguaro. We also have creosote bush in the scene.
Photographed with my go to lens on my floral photography, which is the Tamrom 90 mm macro lens. Since I had some distance to the background, I was able to get a good DOF on the flower with an aperture of f7.1. I added just a little bit of texture in the background to give it a little bit of a grungy look.
It is always a pleasure exploring a flower up close with my 90mm Tamron macro lens capturing all the detail of such beautiful flowers. I mounted my camera on a tripod and placed this flower a light tent with a piece of black fabric in the background and used continuous LED lighting which I purchased at a local hardware store. I gave the flower a little blast of water from a spray bottle to create the due drops.
To do righteousness and justice
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. Proverbs 21:3
