Day 268: Fuchsia II

Day 268

By the time I got home tonight the light was starting to fade and I hadn’t managed to take a photo yet.  I don’t have a decent flash for my Pen, so I had to do what I could with the little light there was…  This did mean a very open aperture, crossed fingers and desaturation, with the contrast pumped up, to create a more ‘grainy’ look and make the most of the light that was on the white petals.  It nearly worked, but I do feel like this could have been a really beautiful photograph in better light.

Taken with my Olympus Pen EP-1. Setting: Aperture Priority. Aperture: f2.8; Shutter: 1/25; ISO: 1600.  Pancake Lens.  Cropped and desaturated in iPhoto.
