Flower Portrait: Raindrops


Nalinki at Angles and Views has started #flowersoverflowers where we can share our favourite blossoms of the week. It seems like a good idea to spread some blooms across the Internet. I am more than happy to join in.

    1. ‘fraid not. It was taken with an older Panasonic TZ10 which I recently found did very good close-ups. This pelargonium is in my ‘yard’ so it was shot through an open window in the rain!


    1. Panasonic TZ10 – as I said to Meg, it was raining and I took this shot from indoors. I do have some flower photos coming up that were taken using the OMD with the 40 – 150mm (80 – 300)lens. I must admit it is quite a learning curve going from a bridge camera that ranges from 24 – 720mm! Do you have to change lenses mid-shoot or do you stick to scenes that suit the lens? I cheated and took the Panasonic with me to get the wide angles shots!

      1. Sometimes I challenge myself to use only one lens, and zoom with my feet… Other times, I will change lenses mid shoot.


      2. I suppose this is something I will get used to over time. Just wondering if I can justify buying the macro lens, which is actually the reason I went the 4/3 route, before I come down to Surrey.

    1. We shall see Gilly. What I have noticed so far is that the details look sharper and it is better with the contrasts, so the sky is not overexposed. Not that I have had a lot of opportunity to photograph a blue sky lately!
