Photo of the Week 50

Photo of the Week 50
Friday has arrived again and it's now time for us to unveil our choice for our featured "Photo of the Week."  In keeping with our current summer outdoors theme, we are pleased to announce that this photograph of a purple rose has been selected for our fiftieth featured photo.

The lighting conditions were amazing the day that we took this photo.  It was too good to pass up the opportunity to shoot pictures for the portfolio.  The location we were at provided plenty of chances for that.

We had attended a concert at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah the night before we took this picture.  I had observed what looked like an amazing angle of the Salt Lake temple that I wanted to take a picture of.  Unfortunately, I did not have my tripod with me so the photo I took was lacking.  I wanted another shot.  After returning someone to the airport a couple days later, I took the opportunity to try for that second shot.

While waiting for the light to get to just the point I wanted it, we took the time to wander around the grounds.  There were some flowers in bloom that I decided to try for to keep myself entertained.  This rose was one such flower.

These photograph required my tripod and macro lens as I wanted to have a tack sharp photo and there was enough distance from me and the flower, thanks to a roped off barrier, that I couldn't get as close as I wanted.

Getting an angle without showing the chain or the foot path took a couple of tries.  The zoom power of the macro lens got in right where I wanted the shot.  With the cable release, I was able to make sure that there was no hand jiggle motion.

The flash was also required to make sure that the rose was properly lit and that the leaves and foliage in the background did not overpower the flower.  Thanks to all of that, I was able to nail this particular shot beautifully.
