Our fi­nal stop was the South African Meadow, which was much sparser than the other sec­tions. For my Shot of the Day I used a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 to nar­row the depth of field dra­mat­i­cally be­tween the main flower and those in the back­ground. I’m es­pe­cially happy with the bar­rel dis­tor­tion that this lens has given the flow­ers in the back­ground. I hit the fo­cus spot-on with sin­gle-point aut­o­fo­cus to bring a crisp­ness to the petals. I tried to work all the el­e­ments of com­po­si­tion that Philip had taught me through­out the day, in­clud­ing get­ting low, mak­ing an­gles and fol­low­ing the rule of thirds.
