Togetherness

1 month 3 weeks ago #697150 by stevendillonphoto
Togetherness is from my The Beauty Within collection and was composed at the Yonce Farm in Ridge Spring, SC.  In my mind’s eye, the anthers in this piece were lovingly touching each other.  Almost as if they were siblings or puppies bonding while grouped close to each other.  This is also another example of using a very long exposure time (especially for macro at nearly two times life size magnification).  A full ten seconds was used since the rising sun had just come up and was partially obscured by clouds.

Well-united. Where do you did you take this shot? What was the setting?

Carl,
As mentioned in the post, this is another from the Yonce Farm.  I used a very long shutter time as the sun had just come up and was hiding behind some clouds.  All of my work is outside, in nature - captured as it exists.  Hopefully that answers your questions, if not, feel free to ask more.

It would be nice to see your set-up in the setting of the shot and how you delicately take the shot.

Yeah, I had considered doing that at some point, but then never got around to it.  :-(  Half of the problem with that is when you're at Bob's and there are SO many gorgeous subjects calling you, you just want to capture everything you can before the wind picks up and you have to pack up and head for home.
