Urban Nature Part 2

I just remembered that I wanted to try and shoot the rose from yesterday’s post with a little more time.

This positioning shot shows you how the one rose is the highlight of the bush.

rose1You can also get an idea how dark the background is going to be when the camera is concentrated on the rose.

From this shot it looks like I’ve got time to mess around with exposures and the like, but the reality was that the light was totally gone in 3 minutes.

rose2I should have used a higher setting so there would be more depth of field and the whole flower would have been in focus.  I won’t be able to go back tomorrow because as you can see in comparing the shots from the two days, the color is starting to fade from the rose.

Seeing that the light was fading, I changed to try and catch some backlighting and ended up with this.

Truly urban, and truly natural.
