  1. This is exquisite. Would you share the lens, f/stop, shutter speed, & ISO please? hand-held or tripod? (I’m selfishly trying to “steal” from other’s knowledge so that I can improve, and I struggle with flowers.) Thanks

  2. Mona – No secret. I merely take the photos of the flowers outside in the natural light. Sometimes they come out great sometimes not so much. I use a Nikon camera with a macro lens. It merely takes practice, that and knowing how your camera works. The best advice I can give you is practice on flowers in the garden, or your friends garden. I don’t us a tripod, everything I shoot is purely hand held. Tripods are easier, but also very expensive for a good one. My husband uses one. I don’t. Hope that helps.

  3. excellent! flowers are really hard to photograph properly (I know, my daughter is a florist and I photograph her flowers for the website)..I can never get them right, but you have got this one perfectly, capturing the texture and colours extremely well.

    • Thank you for your kind remarks regarding my photography and for stopping by our blog-site. It is nice to know people finally are starting to follow us, and my husband and I are no longer the only two reading it. Your photos are amazing. I enjoy following your adventures. Are your latest works the results of the HDR type photography that is sweeping the photography world? Amazing. Thanks again for following us. L&L

      • Hi. I rarely do HDR but just occasionally I will ‘tweak’ some pictures..I am more a ‘purist’ but sometimes I think they need a bit of lifting. Your blog is really great! Keep up the good work.

      • Thank you for your kinds words of encouragement. I too am more of a ‘purist’. I have yet tried to do HDR. I prefer simple. I agree once in a while, a photo needs a bit of lifting. I try to allow the camera do most of the work.
