Botanical Photos.

Botanical Photos.
I'm studying photography but I rarely share my exhibition-bound photos. For fun I like to take pictures of plants. Whether I'm on a hike, walking down the street in a random neighborhood or visiting someone's garden, I like to capture interesting plants, flowers, or even the little bugs hanging out on them.

I don't really want to put these photos in the favourite flower thread because I don't even know what half of the plants I take photos of are, and I have this obsession with weeds as well so I thought I'd start this thread.

Even if I'm the only person that contributes to it, I hope you enjoy some random plant photos.

*Include general locations as well!

I like your aperture setting Smile

Do you use SLR? Digital? Film?

What shutter speed and film were you using?

I should know all of this.... but I don't pay attention, I just adjust as needed and shoot. Yay for light meters!

The first one is from my phone camera. And that's on auto and I edited in the phone's program where I just moved the saturation to zero.

The second I tried to explain above it.
Pentax K1000 SLR camera. 400ISO Black and white film. I developed and printed the original photos, but that copy is just a scan of the film. No editing, just cropped it down and resized it to a manageable size. The larger resolution shows all of the dust. Tongue Shutter speed? I have no clue. I just adjust it as each photo needs in order to get the lighting right. When I do my pinhole photos using film and the Pentax K1000 I usually do 1/2 second to 2 second shutter speeds. I don't think I have any plant photos from the pinhole though.
