Iris I (2004)

I took a lot of Iris photos this spring since they're one of my partner's favorite flowers. This photo had the most planning involved. I wanted to take a photo that captured the yellow "beard" of the iris both full on and in profile. I also wanted to capitalize on the beautiful upward and downward curves of the petals. The most difficult part was getting both "beards" in focus in a macro shot. To do this, I used a zoom and took the shot from further away then I usually do for macro shots.
