Lily Flower

June 30th, 2010

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III__TS-E90mm f/2.8__6.0 sec at f / 22__ISO 100

I have a small pond adjacent to my backyard patio, and the lilies are in bloom!  I made this image on Sunday, using two frames stitched together in Photoshop CS5.  To fulfill my concept, I cut the flower, then placed it in a small bowl of water which in turn was placed on black velvet.  Aiming straight down, I “shifted” my Canon TS 90mm lens to include two halves of the flower in two separate exposures.  This techniques allows me to create a square format with Photomerge, which suits this flower shape to me.  It also gives me a bigger file:  PS Image Size reads this file as 206 MB.

Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts,   Bill

    Another outstanding image but how did you get such depth of field at f/2.8?

  5. Beautiful light, colours and details. The square format suits it perfectly.

  6. Hi Stacey,

    I used light from two corner windows in my dining room, with fabric on the floor!

    Thanks for your kinds words. How’s your work coming along?

    I like the shot – the depth, color and sharpness are great as usual. You have such a nice subtle touch in image creation. What was the light source? Window with reflector?
