Water lilies make wonderful flower subjects. In this video, professional photographer Tony Sweet demonstrates two different methods of capturing a purple and yellow water lily. With a 300mm fixed lens on a tripod, he shoots a close up portrait at f-16. As a second method, he sets up for an asymmetrical multiple exposure, using a tripod collar on the lens. He goes with the multiple exposure mode in the camera menu, then rotates the camera for each of the ten exposures, zooming slightly back and forth, which results in an abstract asymmetrical image. For an alternative series, he adds a diffusion disk for a different lighting look.
