I’ve mentioned in other posts about flower photography that light color flowers are a bear to expose properly and retain detail in the highlights. This rose was no exception. Again, shooting in RAW format gave me the latitude I needed to pull it off. The petals are so delicate and textured that you can feel the rose with this photo. It’s one of my best yellow flower photographs. I used my Nikon D800 with my top of the line Nikkor 24-70mm F/2.8 lens. This lens has phenomenal sharpness are sensitivity to light. That’s why it’s $1850 just for the lens. It’s worth it when you need a wide angle to medium telephoto that’s fast. It’s ideal for flower photography.
