2019-02-03- Nature Photography – Flowers – Camellia

Thanks to the break in the rain we had I was able to finally take pictures of our Camellia. Called the Queen of the winter flowers, Camellias are attractive evergreen shrubs that bloom for weeks from fall to spring, when the rest of the garden offers little.

As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops and focal lengths. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future. Today I used two different directions for shooting.

The Camera setting for the Sony SLT-A77V with a Sony DT 16-105mm F3.5-5.6 lens was:

  • Metering Mode: Auto
  • Drive Mode: Single shot
  • Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority Mode
  • Aperture setting: f/5.6, f/8, f/11 & f/18
  • Focal Length: 16mm, 35mm, 70mm & 105mm
  • ISO Setting: Auto
  • Focus Mode: Single Shot.

Below is the complete set of photos taken:
