    Took my 135 DC out to do a few floral shots, and this was my favorite of the bunch. Shooting in direct sunlight, I dialed in -1EV exposure compensation to keep the petals from blowing out. Exposure was 1/8000 @ f/2.8, ISO 200. B&W conversion, levels adjustment, and a pretty heavy crop done in CS2.

    Let me see....high shutter speed, large aperture, then just back up to increase you depth of field. Then crop down to a close-up. Great tip! I'll definitely put this one to use. I learn so much from these forums...thanks.

    oh, btw, wonderful picture and conversion.

  3. Well done Zach. I like this one a lot
  4. I like it! I happen to like flowers done in BW, sometimes they can look very interesting like this one.

    Thanks everyone. Definitely not one of my best shots, but I thought it'd be worth posting.
