The 48th State in Photographs blog: Macro experiment II

Photo by Bill Helm

Photo by Bill Helm

Today I post two versions of the same photograph. One in black and white. The other in color. Each is of a flower I photographed last Sunday with my camera's new macro attachments.

Even when shooting with a higher ISO - also known as stopping down - macro photographs have a minimal amount of depth of field.

I am not certain which f-stop I used for this photograph. It was probably f11. I never record my settings while shooting. I know what I want, I shoot.
