shishirbn - Fantastic photographs. Thanks for sharing.
One suggestion though - After a while the pics become monotonous. This is because you are shooting all of them with the same angle - full frontal. You should try out different angles - it will bring out the beauty much more & also break the monotony. Just my two paise.
Thanks very much for this thread, what you have done will be helpful to lot many people who are unable to visit the flowershow, or revive the nostalgia for many others.
Since you are still experimenting with your camera and photography, I have couple of suggestions especially while taking pictures of flowers. These are the things which I háve learnt over last two plus years.
1. Flower is like a beautiful female body. With sensuous exposure, the attraction increases.
2. curves are everything, just like "you know where"
3. The leaves, some parts of the plant adds to the beauty of the flower. It is just like the accessories a lady will carry with her e.g bag, footwear etc.
4. Bright flowers like yellow, white are better seen in a photograph taken with slightly negative EV value.
5. A small group of sweet 16 girls attract lot of attention. Similarly, 3-4-5 similar or different flowers look more beautiful than the single one on it's own.
6. Sharpness and closest possible colour reproduction are important while choosing the camera settings, rest are secondary.
7. Use as less zoom as possible, which means you have to move as closer to lady as possible. It increases the possibility of chemistry
8. Do not focus too much on the settings and technicalities. Be honest, be natural, be friendly, feel the situation, enjoy the company. Focus on good composition. Flowers as well as ladies like it.
9. A bit of post processing helps. It is just like applying the right make up which enhances inherent beauty.
Ofcourse, i am still learning, some of the above may not be true in all cases. There might be more possibilities.
As you keep shooting, you will evolve your own understanding and do's and don'ts. Key thing is not to let go the enthusiasm after the initial surge.
