The purpose of this assignment was to get as close to a flower as possible to fill the frame, and at the same time, achieve sharp focus. Recipe was to use a large aperture and shallow depth of field.
There are no impressive flowers in our yard yet, and it was a windy day. Since no requirement was given about photographing “real” flowers, I decided to focus on a beautiful bouquet my granddaughter handcrafted for my birthday present. The sparkly ladybug in the middle puts a smile on my face I hope it will cause you to smile too.
Camera settings that worked well for all shots:
