I have 4,000 photos of sunflowers. Well, maybe a dozen. I was hiking in the Boise Foothills this weekend and there looks to be a pretty good crop. That means more photos.
There's just something about sunflowers. I don't know.
Anyway, I noticed something while taking a photo this time. The background and color. I shoot wildflowers with a telephoto lens and with a limited depth of field to blur the background.
Anyway, I noticed this time if I moved slightly, the vegetation behind the sunflower was brown in one place and green in the other.
The color of the background of your wildflower photos can make all the difference in the photo.
Sometimes getting the blurry background of a granite rock makes the best shot. Another time the blurry background of a paved or dirt road can add zip to the photo.
Anyway, on these two photos, I moved slightly to get different colors for the background.
Well, you had to be there.
