Today, I found where a Pileated Woodpecker had been, and took photographs. With my macro lens, I am working presently with one point of focus, which means, you really better know exactly where the one point of focus is on what you are about to take a picture of, because all that is not of the one point of focus will be blurry. This especially holds true when using an F-Stop of 2.8, as I was in the these photographs below.
I took the time to put the one point of focus on different spots on the tree, to show you just by moving the camera a tiny bit, thereby putting the point of focus on a different spot, makes all the difference in the world in the photograph. I am learning how extremely sensitive macro photography is. By seeing the photographs below you will see what I am talking about. Also below each photo, I will explain where I put the one point of focus where I intended the photograph to be the clearest and the most in focus.
Macro photography is an entirely different field of photography, which I am just beginning to understand. I have so much to learn yet, but what I am learning, I am more then willing to share with you. For you who don’t understand photography lingo, please bear with me. I think you will get the understanding when you actually look at the pictures. Then what I have said about the one point of focus and how sensitive that one point of focus is, especially when using F-2.8, will give you …. OH! That is what Amy is talking about! Enjoy!
Now are you getting an idea how sensitive this field of photography is? Now do you know why my hands shake? Hope you enjoyed looking at these as much as I enjoyed taking them. I am having so much fun!! xxoo, Amy
