Tiny white flowers

Posted in , ,
In the last post, I mention about sharing more photos taken with the 50mm f/1.8 lens.

Today picture isn't a great shot (but it does make a cute thumbnail), but it demonstrates the narrow depth of field that an aperture f/1.8 can produce. However, this lens does not feature a good magnification, so it's not good for macro shots like this (there is a dedicated 50mm Macro lens by the way)

This flower is about the size of a fingernail, so it's a little hard to aim at. And the winds make it even tougher.

Camera settings:
Focal length: 50mm
F-stop: f/1.8
Exposure time: 1/2000 second
ISO: 100
Exposure bias: -0.3 step

High pass sharpening
White balance
adjusted individual colours


  1. I like this photo!
    It shows that it is not always the prettiest nor tallest stand out but the one that capture your vision.

  2. I think it's a pretty nice Shot! ^^

  3. wow, may i know if you have any references to study about photography?

  4. @Eve: Yes! That's the feeling!

    @Dewi: thanks!

    @Troy: I only went for a short course before, as mentioned in my previous post. No every shot is good, I pick an average of 1 photo to edit and post for every 100 photos taken.
