The first day of Spring brought sunny skies and warm temperatures. As I was picking up my lawn after a long winter, I noticed the group of Snow Drop flowers in the bright light. These flowers have probably been blooming for a few days but this was the first time I noticed them.
Not having a macro lens, I put a Nifty-Fifty (aka 50mm f/1.8) prime lens on my camera. I had to be careful to not get too close to keep the flowers in focus. I used different apertures to control the depth of field.
For these two flowers, I opened up the aperture to f/4 which put the background out of focus and popping the Snow Drops right at you. It was a little breezy so the resulting fast shutter speed helped to keep the flowers in focus.
How did you enjoy the first day of Spring?
