      Thank you, Lorraine. I had fun going out in the morning and shooting all these glorious flowers. I use my Nikon D2X camera, and the lens I used in these images was my Nikon 50mm f/1.4 prime, which is my favorite. The 1.4 aperture is what gives the shallow depth of field, with the dreamy background. I have also used my Nikon Macro lens. I prefer prime lenses, as zooms eat up a lot of light. 🙂ReplyCancel
