Pink tulips among a sea of red tulips
Pink tulips among a sea of red tulips

It has been quite a while since I posted something on photography over at this blog. I had the opportunity to view many many different flowers last month while on holiday in Taiwan. Here are some shots I took while playing with the focus of the camera.

Droplets of water on the flower petals really add “character” to a shot. It shows that the flower looks really “fresh” after having had a drink.

I tried to line up the two tulips for this shot. Focusing on the one in the foreground and blurring out the one behind.

What do you think of this effect?

This shot was taken from the same position the one above but I was focusing on the bi-colored tulips instead of the light pink ones in the foreground.  It is interesting to see how the texture of the shot changes once the focus shifts.

I prefer the shot above as compared to this one as this one doesn’t seem to be cropped as nicely.  The background seems to be a bit too “messy” also. What do you think?

Any suggestions on how to improve capturing tulips?
