Day 82

ISO 100, 100mm macro, f/14, 1.6 sec.

Day 82 - Royalty

Frantically searching for a subject, I headed out the front door tonight with tripod and macro lens in hand. I was relieved to see the Asian pear tree almost in full bloom. It stands right next to our front door, it must have just opened up these last two days.

Shooting the blossoms straight on just didn't do the purple stamens and white petals justice. I took the lens to the left of the blossom and brought out the LED flashlight with its blue light and played with the shadows of the stamen.

I could make the shadows dance and dramatically change the depth just by repositioning the flashlight.
