Roots

Been a while since I posted. I took this back in January when I was using a prime lens. This caught my eye when I was going back over photographs. Not sure if this one tree or multiple trees sharing the same place. Looking forward to photographing later this year with leaves and maybe a wider lens opening.

Bleakness of Winter

Another one from a few weeks ago when I went out with a prime lens to see what I could photograph. Not that nice of a day, but that is normal for winter around here. Typically we don’t have a lot of snow and we normally left with the dull browns and grays. The blue/gray of the sky gives you an idea of what the overall temperature in the scene, and I avoided warming it up in Lightroom so I could capture the cold late afternoon. Finally, As you eye moves from the bottom center towards the top you can see the flock of Mallards that were hanging about.

Last Leaves

So last week, or maybe the week before, I decided to just use a prime lens and see what I could get. Since I only own one prime lens the choice was easy. I wish finding a subject was that easy though. I believe I took 47 photographs, and, at least for now, I think this was the best of them. It was at then end of my walk and this set of leaves caught my eye. I opened the lens to the maximum aperture to achieve the low depth of field, and cropped the final edit to a square. I reduced the saturation around the leaves to bring the out a little.
