Some Tulips
In reply to Gautam Majumdar, Apr 1, 2012

1DmkIV / 5DmkII + Sigma 150mm OS / 100mm L, all shots handheld (IS / OS works well for this type of shooting).

Many more at my Zenfolio galleries.

Cheers,
Eyvind

We've had so much rain here, but did manage to get a few last weekend in my front yard.

5DII + 100mm/2.8 macro: Orange azalea
In reply to Gautam Majumdar, Apr 7, 2012

It's azalea season in my area! I've been photographing a deciduous orange azalea bush as the blooms open. For example, here's a photo April 4

as compared to this afternoon, April 6, a bloom opening (cropped photo)

and another farther along

Canon 100mm/2.8 macro lens. Full EXIF, shooting settings/methods, large sizes and additional new photos on my flickr link below.
Other recent floral photos with 135mm/2L with 2x extender too.
Best regards, Sandy

Nice shots, Gautaum...seems like depth of field was presenting difficulties on these shots? How large are the blossoms?
