My walk on Saturday was also to photograph for the Close Up Photography assignment and this is my contribution to Scott Thomas Photography Assignment 12. One of the problems that I ran into while shooting outdoor was the wind, this daffodil kept swaying back and forth. Since I don’t have a macro lens, I decided to use my 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens for composition purpose. I shot these images in AI Focus mode, I’m happy that it creates a sharp image and a nice bokeh background.
I used a tripod for the second image. It helped some and luckily the wind died down in the evening.
