Water Lily Photography

Wellesley College is a close by photo destination that provides plenty of Inspiration. Water lilies are currently blooming and I was able to stop by the other day to photograph some of them. 

In this particular one I zoomed in close to show the entire beauty of the water lily blossom. I isolated the white floral against the dark waters and leaves of the pond so to point all focus to the flower. A Polarizing Filter eliminated unwanted glare from surfaces and enhance colors. Aperture was set at f/32 to maximize Depth of Field, providing a shutter speed of 1/3 of a second at ISO100. During post processing I removed dust spots and imperfections, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final image of I Wish I Were You.
