Spur of the moment flower pics, using aperture priority again.

I met up with a friend and showed him the new lens and some of the photos
taken with it.

After we finished breakfast, my friend left and I took a few photos of some flowers in the early morning light.

I don’t know what happened with this photo, check out the reflection here. Or maybe the wind blew right when the shutter snapped.

All of these shots were wide open, f/1.8 or f/2-2.2, and I experimented with the focus points to see the depth of focus.
These photos have been resized for ease of download for the net.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with your photos. If you only get one good shot,
it’s worth it. I feel that there is one keeper out of the total of 24 that I took this morning. That one will make me excited about the next time that I pick up the camera.
