An in-camera Orton technique image
True to its name – in bloom now in January
A blossom is finger nail sized
Rain drops are pin-head sized
300 feet down the street
Nikon D800E (using the Image Overlay option) on tripod
105 mm Nikkor 1:1 macro with 1.4 X teleconverter; circular polarizer
LiveView focus to nail the tiny water drops on the front center flower
5-second timer delay + mirror up to eliminate shake
Cropped from 4 x 6 to 4 x 5
Lost 6 MP, only 30 MP left
Six steps from capture to final
Capture vs Final
One of my Winter Jasmine favorites.
Among my very first multiple exposures
Made 10 years ago with my 2nd camera – a 5 MP Nikon P&S
I was ecstatic at the time – thought wow, wow, wow
