Budding

3 months 3 weeks ago #622727 by stevendillonphoto
Budding is from my Flora collection and was composed at the Aiken County Historical Museum in Aiken, SC.  After finding the subject bud, my next task was to find a full bloom that I could use as a background.  I worked my way around the bud until I had the bloom lined up behind it (a challenging task all by itself).  Luckily when composing at two times life-size, there isn't much DOF and the bloom only produced colors.  Using your Live View feature (if your camera has that) can really be valuable when doing this type of setup because you can see exactly what you're going to get and it can help you get things properly aligned.  Don't forget to press your DOF preview as well to check what the background will look like.
