My granny’s little vase and some lovely snapdragon’s from the garden, the ideal way to try out a new background for my photography. I do like the look of the wooden backgrounds and I have been experimenting with lower number F-Stops on my camera.
I was having a little difficulty taking this photo of the wheat, it was a bit windy and I was adjusting the shutter speed, coupled with the fading light. I was really trying not to rush as I wanted to capture the beauty of something so simple, and also trying different apertures out (this was 2.8). It’s a little grainy and not as crisp as I intended and I did tweak it post processing with some editing, but I like the finished picture and the cobwebs over the wheat, although my daughter thought they would look horrible and wouldn’t come near in case there were spiders!
The things I have been struggling with a little this week have been the low light we have had at times, so I have been following Emily’s advice and altering the exposure compensation to gain more light on those dreary days, which has really helped.
If you are on a photo journey like mine, I would love to hear about how you are getting on, and if you have any tips you have found useful.
Thank you for reading, I will be posting at the end of this week with more of my progress.
