MY FREE PHOTO OF THE DAY features yellow daisies on a softly blurred background. This photo was shot at the BioPark Botanic Garden in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the late spring. The softly blurred background colors come from out-of-focus flowering plants in the background.
The BioPark Botanic Garden features over one and a half miles of paths through formal and whimsical gardens, including a Japanese Garden and rose garden. Exhibits include Mediterranean and Desert Conservatories, and a working 1920’s farm. There is also a delightful Butterfly Pavilion that is open during the summer months.
To create this photo of yellow daisies, I used a close-up filter on my standard lens and a wide aperture. This inexpensive filter ($16) allowed me to focus very close to the flowers while blurring the background completely. My camera was an inexpensive used Canon EOS D30 (3 Megapixels) DSLR.
