Red Light

Red Light

Walking back and forth to the SHOT Show in Orlando Florida where I am for a week working, I keep my eyes open and my finger on the shutter release, of course.

This mass of Begonias was planted in front of a hotel…and I was struck by the light and shadows, by the textures, and by the range of reds. I tried both wide and more close-up shots and liked this moderate tele shot the best.

Sony DSC H50 at about 80mm equiv. F4.0 @ 1/320th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

The image is from (actually the only image in, so far) the Orlando and Titusville Gallery

    I usually really enjoy the work you do with Digital P&S, but this one is definitely not one of mi favorites. May I suggest trying the same shot again a bit closer to dusk? You will be surprised at how much more detailed it will be, without distractions from glare. I’ve shot these with a Canon A590IS with excellent results, using wide macro.

    If you get the chance, send the one you take at dusk so we can compare.

    Keep up the good art,
