HOT SHOT #2

NPhoto - - Over To You -

Our Ap­pren­tice says… Heather sug­gested shoot­ing this strik­ing fern against a plain dark back­ground, to make the most of its graphic shape, and bring out its au­tum­nal colours. By set­ting an aper­ture of f/11 and shoot­ing the fern so that all of its leaves were on the same plane, I was able to get most of it sharp from front to back. It wasn’t easy, though, be­cause it was being blown around in the wind, and at 1/100 sec my shut­ter speed wasn’t quite fast enough to freeze the move­ment. I just had to wait for the wind to drop.

EX­PO­SURE 1/100 sec, f/11, ISO160 LENS Tam­ron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD
