Taken in the middle of the night after a rain shower..I used a external light source to light up the tulips and a few peaces of wood to support the top heavy flower int the wind. I had to do this because the flower gained a lot of extra weight from all the water drops.I used a close-up filter set on top of my macro lens for maximum effect, because of the filters my depth of field became very tiny and I needed to use a larger aperture. Because of this the shutter speed became not ideal and my external light source wasn't very powerful. Al these factors made it extremely important to support the flower to eliminate any movement.Unlike my other photo ("Majestic yellow tulips"), this photo was even harder to take. The aperture i had to use to get this nice depth of field was so high that the shutter speed would become way to slow. Therefor I adjusted the ISO to a higher value.I'm quit happy with the natural result, just a rain shower, yellow tulips, and my gear.Let me know what you think! Would love some nice and supportive feedback!
