Favourite pictures – The hyacinth

This hyacinth plant was growing in the Museum Gardens in York and I found it as I was walking along the river bank when we were visiting recently. Since I had my wide angle Tamron lens fitted to my camera I tried taking a flower shot using the widest setting of 10mm with the aperture open as wide as it would go which is f/3.5. Obviously at that setting the background defocus will not be very great, but I think it’s just enough to let the main subject flower stand out.

  • Sony Nex 6
  • Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5
  • 1/125sec
  • 125ISO
  • f/3.5
  • 10mm focal length (15mm equivalent on aps-c)

  1. The background is still rather busy even at 3.5 and this close to the subject. Mind you, depth of field is always greater with wide angles.
