Continuation of yesterday’s lighting technique

I followed the same technique as yesterday’s Bloody Mary pictures to take some shots of plants in my front yard. It was a little more difficult to perform this operation in just sunlight as opposed to using an artificial light source in that I can’t control the sun.

I had to make sure there was lot of light on the item I wanted in focus and substantially less light on the background. And then I used a very fast shutter to make sure only the brightest objects were recorded clearly.

These native plants grow in the xeric shade garden on the east side of my house.
