This morning I decided I needed to clear my head. I have too many things going on in my life at the moment. They’re all good things, just too much for my little brain to process all at once. It was time to force my brain onto one topic and one topic only. So, while it was still cloudy and relatively comfortable, I grabbed the camera and headed out to the cranberry bogs.
This time, I loaded my Canon 60D with a Nikon AF-S 28mm lens that I bought for stop motion. I really wanted to bring the Nikon 50mm instead, but couldn’t manage to get the adapter off the 28mm. Whatever.
Again, I embarked on my mission to get up close and personal while reducing the background to a colorful haze. The Nikon goes all the way down to f2.8 which gave me a nice, short depth of field. I also prefer shooting on cloudy days as I find sunshine makes things to contrasty. (I also don’t like the sun on a personal basis). Clouds give objects a more pleasing diffuse shadow.
I admit, one or two of the images don’t quite fit with the others, but I liked them so I included them.
