Janet’s com­ment

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

We started off with some close-up ab­stract shots at a wa­ter­fall near Loch Ken. Morag ad­vised to get down low into a com­fort­able pose as we’d be there for a while, tin­ker­ing with close-up com­po­si­tions fo­cus­ing on the tex­tures and flow of the wa­ter. Us­ing a macro lens, we tried a lower shut­ter speed of 1/60 sec – this froze the bub­bles but kept the flow of wa­ter blurred. In this shot I used a wide aper­ture of f/2.8, which has blurred the fore­ground and back­ground el­e­ments, so the eye is drawn to the sharp cen­tre.
