Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

New azalea blossoms, the first for 2010!

This macro photo was captured on Thursday, April 8th with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/60th second at f/5.6 to increase the intensity of the “bokeh” background. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a Manfrotto 222 head. A remote shutter release cable was also employed to eliminate camera shake.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.
