What more can I say but apple blossom.. again with my portrait lens and extension tubes. Little bit of colour correction to dampen down the vivid greens. Although the light was soft at 6.am this morning, I found the best tones and textures were captured if I shaded the blossom. My Body against the sunlight seemed to be the best shade maker. Using a fast shutter speed with the lens wide open and ISO 500 meant that I could work hand held and be more spontaneous with my compositions. Rather than using auto focus, I moved the lens forward or backward as i rocked forward and backward to reach the right focus point.
