Blackfoot Daisy

I photographed this Blackfoot Daisy last February while out at the LBJ Wildflower Center. I’ve always liked this flower even though it resembles many other Texas Wildflowers. A member of the Aster family, this plant is very popular in this part of the world.

Normally, Blackfoot Daisy begins to bloom in March, along with Bluebonnets and other popular wildflowers, and continues through November. Individual flowers are about an inch in diameter and consist of 8 – 10 white petals with a yellow center. However, it is the continuous mass of flowers that cover the plant, rather than the individual blooms, that make it so attractive.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/16, shutter speed at 1/200th of a second, and the ISO set at 100. I did not use a flash to light the subject. I used Lightroom, Photoshop, and Nik Color Efex Pro to finalize the image. I exercised my artistic license and removed the background in order to focus the attention on the flower details.
