Mexican bluebell still life

The Mexican Bluebell flower is a popular garden flower in Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia. Purple and pink flowers are everywhere I look. They also grow in white. However, the white color flower is less popular in my neighbourhood. The selection of Mexican Bluebell still life photos curated here are amongst my favourite botanical artworks.

Although the Bluebell is plentiful in my world, they’re also a very delicate flower, and sadly they bloom for one day only. Their short life means they don’t last long in the studio. For this series I used a macro lens, and opted for a shallow depth of field. The Canon 65 mm is a manual focus lens with f2.8 as its most shallow DOF f-stop. Thereby, focusing on elements of flower, in particular the stem to bring out the details.
