I’ve been experimenting with various lenses and techniques the last couple of weeks. For instance, the Sony came with what they call a kit lens. It’s a pancake lens with a zoom of 18-50mm.
I never used it much, because I didn’t like the pictures it took. But I’ve been forcing myself to give it another look and sometimes the results are promising. For instance, this is a baby white vinca about to open. I shot straight down on it with a shallow depth of field so everything else would be blurry. The background is as shot, really nice bokeh.
I learn something new all the time, and that keeps photography exciting and fresh.
I was snapping a shot of the bleeding heart vine and didn’t notice until I downloaded it that there was an ant on it. That’s how small these flowers are. I mean, tiny. They grow wild along the edge of the woods behind me.
See you next time.
