Lotuses at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens

Nature, Photography

I went back to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens yesterday morning. The lotuses were in full blooming conditions and will probably stay that way for at least a week. I used my Nikon D600 camera with all purpose 28-300mm lens. I set my camera at manual mode with shutter speed at 1/800 sec or faster and f stop at 5.6 or higher number for more depth of field. I also set the ISO at Auto to let the camera determined the proper light intake.

    Than you for stopping by, Hanna. I’ve been using this setting quite often lately and seems to work very well – it’s a lot easier to change speed and/or aperture, literally at your finger tips and let the camera decides the ISO setting with preset limitations.

  2. Oh what beautiful photos! The lotus flower always reminds me of Thailand, where I used to live…happy memories šŸ™‚
    Thank you for sharing
