What a struggle. In three days I have taken over 500 pictures and most of them garbage. Over exposed, under exposed, blurry, or just irrelevant. I've narrowed them down to about five maybe usable pictures. Then sat here staring at them thinking "Not good enough"!
The last few days were splendid, fabulous, and magnificent! The girls I took out to the fields and pond behind us today were charming and delightful. My skills - not so much.
I tried to simulate the color and layout from Sere's post with this "Up the Tree" photo. I played in and out of soft and hard natural light and adjusted my depth of field a lot. I'm figuring out how to adjust more to help myself.
I do like the depth of field in this one. The leaf in the foreground is slightly out of focus as is the background. I need a vitamin and a nap now...
