A Different Perspective on Tulip Photography
The tulips are in full bloom now in Washington Park here in Albany. I have taken at least 500 tulip shots over the years. Those are pretty much standard flower shots. Pretty but not dramatic. The other day I realized that I could combine iPhone control with my Nikon D7200 and a Rokinon 12mm Fisheye for something very different.
I found a nice tulip bed in the shade after work today, placed a small rubber mat on the ground, prefocused the set up for hyperlocal at f11 and .2 feet, Shutter was 1/200 sec. Using my iPhone Nikon WMU App, I fired the shutter and with the help of my little friends, who with Dad's permission, stepped into the scene.
A little editing and "I Love This Shot" result!
