In Brookline

Winter is coming slowly but surely to an end and currently there is not much snow scenery out here in Massachusetts. I always like to use this kind of downtime to capture abstract macro flower photography. It's easy to do and this yesterday morning I had great fun with lilies in my dinning room. The lilies were in full bloom and wide open. It was relatively easy to set up my tripod with the camera and zoom in real close but use different perspectives. In this image I decided to compose a floral macro image from behind and below the blooming lily. I pointed the blooming lily towards the window for optimal lighting and illumination of the flower petals. The focus point in this image was the part where the petals and stem combine and I used a white card board to lighten the shadowed stem and backside of the floral. I achieved best exposure results by bracketing the image in 1/2 stops and the self timer minimized camera movement; therefore enhancing overall image quality. I liked the soft, dreamy image of the 1/2 over exposed image the best and started my post processing from its file; applying little contrast and color saturation enhancement. Last I sharpened the image.
