|Wild Flowers in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness
Late July, 2011
This is what I learned from John and Barbara Gerlach about taking pictures of flowers:
Do not shoot flowers that are in direct sunlight.
Use a tripod and remote control cable.
Do not take pictures in wind. (Will buy a flower camp when I get home to hold flowers steady.)
Low ISO (less noise).
Manual exposure and shutter speed using histogram.
Use a macro lens. (John suggested I upgrade from 100mm to 200mm macro for a more blurred background.
