iPhone 11 Pro Portrait Mode in the Garden

I decided to use the same plant to show the different portrait mode settings and how each one can be used to highlight a plant in different ways. So either this geranium feels very loved at being photographed and talked to or it wonders why it just can’t be left alone to flower in peace.

This is portrait mode natural light.

This is portrait mode studio light. I like the blurring of the background and some of the leaves.

This is portrait mode contour light. For plant effects I don’t see much difference between this effect and studio light. I continue to lose visual acuity. Usually on my iPad I can see the differences by blowing pictures up. That is failing me here. If anyone knows, I’d appreciate a comment. (i could look it up I’m sure. But I like to be able to figure it out. OK stubborn.)

This is stage light. I love it with plants. The camera needs to be able to find the subject inside the circle. This can be tricky with plants. After I’m through sharing my geranium torture, I’ll share more plant stage light.
This is stage light mono. I love how the glistening edges of the flower shine through here. I’ve used the stage light mono of Moishe the Tervuren for a card and it was stunning. The printed picture was amazing even though my older iMac couldn’t handle the full resolution of the iPhone 11 Pro photo. (Note i cant upgrade on my iMac to the latest operating software-planned obsolescence.)
This image is high key light mono. I missed this option earlier. So the blossom is gone and there is a group of buds. It was tricky to get the lens to see the subject. When it did I took the picture. Are there buds in here? I can’t tell. I did say stubborn. I will do this until I really can’t see much. This may not come. Ophthalmologist is trying new stronger medication.

Selfie in high key light mono or how I discovered this setting.
The humble marguerite bloom in stage light becomes a spinning petal of sunlight.
My favorite stage light image are these daffodils. They speak for themselves. They encourage me to find the worlds in various parts of our newly landscaped yard and to sing their images into being.
