At Longwood Gardens the rule is tripods can only be used indoors from 9am -12pm. After 12pm you have to hand hold your camera if you want to shoot.
My hand holding skills with a camera is very poor. I just can’t hold the camera steady enough for sharp images.
So my only option to get something sharp is to shoot with a very fast shutter speed.
So I lower my f/stop on my Tamron 90mm macro lens to f/2.8, and raise my ISO up to 1600, and with the very shallow depth of field at f/2.8, I can produce these interesting soft focus flower image.
If you have ever heard the phrase “less is more” that kind of describes this style of shooting, as we are revealing just a very small area of focus, and a nice softness through out the flower.
