Dogwood Flower, Leaves

Sutter Creek, CA

Alright, photographing Dogwood flowers isn’t much like photographing wildflowers or flowers in your garden.  On any given Dogwood tree there can be hundreds of flowers.  The task of isolating one or a few few is difficult enough, but to find the flowers you’ve isolated and have a suitable background produces another challenge.  Often, there’s patches of sunlight or lighter open space to deal with also.

Maybe it’s only this difficult in the area I was looking in where the trees were scarce and bunched together.  Let me know if your experience has been easier than mine.

EXIF data: Nikon D50, patterned metering mode, 50mm, ISO 200, 1/10 sec, f/5.6
