During my Colorado wildflower road trip, I saw several species of Indian Paintbrush, each being a different color. Today’s post features one of the reddish varieties:
I captured 15 images of the last image, varying the focus point and combining them together to get a nice, in-focus image (focus-stacking):
I’ll share some of the other colors of Indian Paintbrush in upcoming posts.
Photographic Equipment Used:
- Canon 5D Mark 3 body
- Canon EF28-135mm, f/3.5-5.6 IS lens (IS “Off” while on tripod), shot at 50mm (a circular polarizer was used on front of the lens to slow down shutter speed, to reduce reflections, and to help saturate the foliage)
- Bogen 3221 tripod with Graff Studioball SB-QR ballhead
- ISO 400
- Aperture f/5.6
- Shutter 1/2oo sec.
