The temperatures have been getting warmer, here in NJ. This led to a nice and warm weekend. This also led me to wake up early on a Saturday morning and go out for some peaceful photography. With a Nikon 105mm 2.8D Macro Lens and a 2x Teleconverter on my D700. I laid in the morning grass. I was in the quiet of the morning. There was no one around so I did not look like too much of an idiot to others. I have been wanting to work on my macro. I was shooting at a high ISO and hand-held. Next time I’ll carry a desk top tripod to make a sharper image. I may use a closeup filter as well. The morning with the dew on the grass. is a perfect time. It was also a perfect shot for my “The One Aperture Challenge” . I took a few shots but this was one of my favorites. I found satisfaction with this attempt. There is nothing like manually focusing in the morning.
The bear has a fall. It was an almost a tragedy but he lived. He was now exposed to our atmosphere and guess what. He’s a toy, he lived. Anyhoo I thought we might play with some light. I checking the cherry blossoms in the late afternoon. I say and interesting opportunity to compose an image and I took it. This time I had the 55mm 2.8 macro on the teleconverter. I had a much different idea for my … but I went with this again satisfaction.
