Taken yesterday at Chestnut Ridge Park, what caught my eyes were the golden lines and hues of yellow grass . Deliberately shooting at a low f-stop and on manual focus, I was going after a dream like quality. I do believe I achieved just that.
I have become so accustomed shooting with manual focus, I am finding I am truly enjoying doing the same thing with landscape photography. I like to be in control of my camera and where exactly I want the focal point to be. I am also realizing I have a lot to learn and to apply to landscape photography. Macro photography I can practically do blindfolded, yet with this too, I am pushing my boundaries as I have begun to show you here on Petals.
I think this image depicts perfectly lazy, hazy days of Summer. I have so many places I wish to yet visit this Summer and yes I do plan on bringing my Canon camera along with me. Practice time has arrived, at least it sure feels that way to me, and oh oh oh I feel so elated to have my eyes on landscape opportunties seeking patterns, colors, textures all in an attempt to create Art.
And now for a wee bit of humor. Some of you will laugh when I tell you I remembered to bring everything with me yesterday that I would need to complete my photo shoot, except for one teeny weeny thing.
Duh! I forgot to put on the bottom of my camera the attachment needed in order to be able to carry my camera on my camera vest. Yup, I brought the vest, in fact spent a good 30 minutes adjusting the darn thing at home (what adjustment this vest doesn’t have … yiveh!) and the reason why I had to adjust it is because the last time I used it was in Winter when I wore a heck of lot more clothes. Big difference between Winter clothing and scanty Summer clothing.
But that vest was good for nothing to me, spending the entire time I hiked in the trunk of my car, all because I forgot to attach what was needed in order to put my camera on that vest. Grrrrrrr ……. (some choice words were used when I realized what I did!) LOL I ended up carrying my camera via the strap over my shoulder.
