  1. Fabulous shot, Kenn! I have some impatiens too, and for some reason, they are very challenging for me to photograph. The darker colored ones especially. You did an outstanding job on this little lady!!! Love, Amy

      • Yes, you did, Kenn. The textures are what I have trouble with too. Too much saturation … decrease the sat … not enough sat … light not right …. grrrr ……. You really did a great job with this!! I understand what it takes to get an impatien!!! I’ll keep trying!!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

    • Thank you, Andy! No, I did not use anything to enhance the texture on this—I just got very close to the flower with a 55mm macro lens set at a shutter speed of 1/1600, an aperture of f/5.6, and a film speed of 100 ISO. All that, plus the lucky break of a very bright late-morning sun, combined to reveal the genuinely silky texture of the bloom.
