On a recent visit to Vermont, I wanted to take up close and personal images of nature. They say God is in the details. I don’t know about that, but there is so much beauty in the details. My thought was to get as close as I could to an object and take a picture with a shallow depth of field, turning the background into a blurry haze.
I’m pretty happy with the results, even though I brought the wrong lens with me. I should have used a 35mm or 5omm prime lens with which I could get really close. I didn’t, so I did the best I could. Next time.
I’ve also been using Lightroom more and more and had a fun time getting lost in the image and marveling at the enormous change to the image that a tiny adjustment made to a single parameter made. There was a certain zen in tweaking and tweaking, gradually working towards the final image.
