Sharpe spring wildflowers photos.


Spring wildflowers come up out of the ground in late March to great the longer days and warmer temperatures. Even though Battelle Darby Creek is famous for the creek and its endangered species. The wildflower populations in the park are impressive. Along every trail there are small flowers poking up through the leaves. The Cob Shell and Dyer Mill trails have the largest concentration of these flowers in the park.
If you want to photograph these flowers there are several steps that will guarantee your success. First, to get a sharp picture always make sure the camera is supported on a tripod or something solid. Especially for the smaller compact cameras. Since any movement of the camera is magnified through the lens even pressing the shutter button will cause a small amount of blur. Using a remote camera trigger or the self-timer can eliminate this. Set the self-timer mode before you compose the picture. This way you don’t have to fumble around at the last second.
Now before you take the picture, look at the background. Leaves that are almost white in color will become beacons that distract the viewer from the subject. Large dark areas will have the same effect. The lens selection will have the most impact on this problem. A longer focal length lens will cause the most blur in the background. The farther away the background is from the subject the more it will disappear.
This image was taken with a 70-300mm lens set at 165mm, the shutter speed is 1/100 sec, the aperture is f/9.0, and the white balance is sunny day. The metering mode was set to pattern metering.
