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.
