Siberian Iris

23 04 2010

I played with depth of field while photographing this Siberian Iris. I shot more than 30 images of this same flower, and found this one to be my favorite. While the flower is sharp, the background has a very shallow depth of field, making the bloom appear to float—love me some of that bokeh!

A gorgeous bloom—I was going to echo your thought of “love me some bokeh,” but then I learned that it comes from the Japanese word boke, a term “used in the sense of a mental haze or senility,” so I decided I did NOT want ANY bokeh, not even a teeny weeney tiny little bit.

What wonderful colour, and I like the detail in the petals.
