Purple Flower

Posted by Richard Irwin (Belper, United Kingdom) on 20 March 2007 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Another flower from my garden. These tiny purple flowers grow in great profusion, and brighten up the garden for weeks on end. This one was photographed hand-held at 1:1 magnification with a Sigma 50mm lens. I set the focus manually before composing, and physically move the whole camera to the focus point I want. This seems to work better than using the autofocus for macro.
