Shoot Them in the Morning

Post by Ken Ramos »

Usually we see Dandelion heads all fuzzy, with hard to control DOF. Though the DOF in this image is far from good it still makes for a very nice shot of the seeding head or at least I think so. :-k :D

Early Morning, Seeding Dandelion
EOS 30D
Manual mode/tripod
1/200 sec. @ f/4.5 ISO 400
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro
Early morning sun, no flash

I was walking about the lawn at the back of the house, when looking down, I noticed how the morning sun was illuminating this seeding head and the fact that it, being damp with the morning dew, looked a lot different and more appealing to photograph than when they are dry. As the morning continued on, the parachutes of the seeds opened up for to catch the slightest breeze that maybe they could deploy on. :D

This is very nice, Ken! :D

I really like the "spotlighting" of the seedhead against the background that's dark but still interesting because of the colored blurs in it.

Quite attractive!

That "spot lighting" effect is what caught my eye Rik. As I said it was early morning but the sun had not been up very long and the first golden rays of the sun, were streaming through the branches and leaves of the Tulip Poplars along side of the house, thus casting bright spots of sunlight here and there and on the seeding head of this Danelion. Thanks Rik :D

A Dandelion in a whole new light Ken. A wonderful picture.

The more I look at it, the more it reminds me of one of those carnival rides. Thanks Doug. :D
