Spring Flower Photography

Dog’s tooth violet
by Kristel Schneider

Thanks to a tip from  Emmanuel Boitier I was lucky to find a rare spring flower called  Dog’s Tooth violet ( Erythronium dens-canis).

After my last flower session on Spring Snowflakes I wanted to take soft focus images and try different things.  But the problem with this little flower is that they do not grow close together.
To get  a nice color glow in my frame I used a 300mm lens, looked for a flower very close to the lens and focused on another flower far away.  Sometimes  the wind can help to give the image ‘ an out-of-focus’ effect.
