popping up poppies

One of my favorite flowers. I had to shoot these poppies at high noon (bad planning)…which is never a flattering light for anything or anyone…it means i had to get on the ground to photograph most of these. If i attempted to photograph them from above, the flowers would have been overexposed & the color would have turned to mud.  These were found at The Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Alabama.

  1. So worth you getting on the ground .. 🙂 What camera are you using Amy?


    1. I have to find a way to cheat the sunlight, i found thats the only way! I have a Nikon D7200. Not a professional camera, but i’ve tried better, but they are too heavy for me to hold steady. ~amy
