I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and have a go at watery macro photography. Frustrated by having to stay at home much more than I’d prefer I am going to channel some energy into mastering the watery arts. I’ve tested my skills regarding off-camera flashes (above) and know I can control the light and how the backgrounds look so good to go. With some tests last night I have a reasonable idea of where to focus, what aperture to use and the other tech stuff so now its turn to get creative and have some fun.
A simple image this morning, reflecting how I feel I guess; quiet and peaceful, not wanting to rush anywhere today.
The inspiration for this image was some brain-storming I did yesterday for a themed camera club competition. One of the ideas was “wide open” and although it didn’t make the final cut it stuck in my mind so as I took a walk along the canal this morning I set the aperture to f2.5 (the X100t can be a little mushy at f2 when close-up) and looked for simple compositions. Working wide open is not something I habitually do when walking along the canal so it made an interesting diversion and a pleasant start to the day.
Just goes to show that photography isn’t just about big vistas, huge depth of field and massively sharp images.
