Purple Mt Flower

Photo of the Week – Mountain Flower

This is the beginning of a new visual and content project. It will consist of photographs I have taken with some teachings for each shot.

Purple Mt Flower

  • Shot with Canon G10 camera
  • 28mm Lens (macro mode)
  • Shutter at 1/160
  • F3.5
  • ISO 80
  • Overcast with sunny patches
  • Processing in Lightroom 5

This was taken on a 30km hike (10 hours) in the sumer of 2013. The difficulty of shooting on a hike of this duration is keeping up with the other hikers on the trip.It’s very easy to get carried away while shooting. I like shooting under pressure (deadline) because it makes you shoot faster and disregard all but the most amazing photographic opportunities.

When shooting flowers try and use a neutral background so that the subject pops. This is also a good technique for portraits. In this case the warm rock color accentuates the purple flower nicely.
