Artist's Description

THESE IRIS’S ARE PLANTED IN THE FRONT YARD OF A FRIENDS HOUSE IN VALLEJO CALIFORNIA. ALTHOUGH MY FRIEND DOESN’T CLAIM TO HAVE A GREEN THUMB, HE HAS A GREENER THUMB THAN I DO. I CAN’T GET A ZIT TO GROW, NOT TO MENTION FLOWERS. THESE IRIS’S HAVE BEEN COLOR CORRECTED AND SATURATED A LITTLE MORE THAN NORMAL. I LIKE THE WAY THE COLOR JUST EXPLODES AROUND THE FLOWERS. I USED MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D WITH MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM TELEPHOTO AF MACRO LENS. THE SHUTTER WAS AT 1/400 AND THE APPERATURE WAS AT F:5.6:1, THE FOCAL LENGTH WAS 70MM, THAT WAS AS WIDE AS THE LENS WOULD GO. I USUALLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE TAKING CLOSE UP SHOTS LIKE THIS TO USE A TRIPOD, OR AT LEAST A MONO POD. HOWEVER, I DON’T ALWAYS FOLLOW MY OWN ADVICE. I’VE BEEN SHOOTING SO LONG THAT WHEN I SEE SOMETHING I WANT TO GET A CLOSE UP OF,,,,,I WAIT FOR MY SWAYING AND MOVING TO SETTLE, THEN WHEN I SEE THE PART I WANT TO BE SHARP,,,,GET SHARP,,,I HIT THE SHUTTER. I ALSO DON’T OFTEN DO CLOSE UP SHOTS WITH MORE THAN ABOUT 70MM. IT GETS TOO HARD TO STAY STILL WITH MUCH MORE THAN THAT. AS WITH RIFLE AND PISTOL SHOOTING, I’VE LEARNED HOW TO NOT SHAKE THE CAMERA WHEN I HIT THE SHUTTER,,,JUST LIKE YOU HAVE TO SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER, NOT JERK IT,,,,IN ORDER FOR THE SHOT TO BE RIGHT.
