Illuminated

1 month 2 weeks ago #692556 by stevendillonphoto
Illuminated is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at the Yonce Farm in Ridge Spring, SC.  Bob only had two of these, but they were both in good shape.  This is torch lily.  An important aspect for me was to have good sharpness (at least as good as I could get) from top to bottom without the use of focus stacking.  Achieving that required aligning the camera’s sensor with the focal plane of the subject.  Something that can be technically challenging, but it will make a huge difference in your own work because it maximizes the zone of sharpness.
