Just Buzzing Along

We went to the beach for a vacation two weeks ago and I had visions of great beach photographs to post, but it rain half the time we were there, so I didn’t take many photographs. So instead I present another photograph from the same day as Heron and The Couple posts. When I took this I was about 6 ft away and when I opened the image on my computer I was amazed at how good this came out. Again, I am very pleased with this lens.

Spring

Been a while since I posted, but wanted to post something newer than January. So I actually got off my butt and and got out a few weeks ago. Most of the trees and plants were somewhere between just starting to come out and already done. As the time of the day was mid afternoon I choose to look for compositions that either were side or backlit.

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.
