Low light climbing roses

  1. Took this picture about an hour ago 8:50 EDT with

    70-300/f4-5.6D
    @300mm
    ISO 200
    Shutter 4sec.
    F8
    I thought I would have more DOF and more of the roses would be in focus as well as the spider in the upper right. I had to manual focus due to low light...... I'm hoping for suggestions on what I could have done differently!

    Mike,

    I'm amazed that you got this shot so late in the day. Did I read correctly that your shutter time was 4 sec?? Were you on a tripod?

    Nicely done. :wink:

    Perhaps a higher ISO would have allowed your shutter speed to be faster.

    I love the pink roses.
     
  4. Frank,
    It was dark enough that I had a hard time seeing to focus.. I tried again tonight with some shots at 30 seconds...see my pbase for one of those. Yes I was on a very shakey tripod.
    Thanks for the coment.

  5. Patrick,

    Would a faster shutter speed help my DOF on this type of shot? I though I needed a smaller aperture? Thanks for your input.

    Mike
