MORE WILD FLOWERS (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

When I started doing nature photography I tended to focus mainly on birds and insects. This summer I decided I wanted to take more wild flower shots and capture their beauty as well. The first two photographs were taken with my 105mm macro lens using a flash and soft box. This lens lets me get nice and close to my subject, the flash helps to freeze motion and provide some light fill and the soft box softens the light. The third photo was taken with my telephoto lens. I began by cropping the photo but decided that the background added interest and depth to the photo and modified my crop considerably. I made a few adjustments to the highlights and exposure to make the central flower more vibrant.
