Go! Camp & Drive - - Your Photo -

It’s not of­ten she walks past a pretty plant in Namibia with­out stop­ping to take a pic­ture, says Bev­er­ley le Grange from Kraai­fontein. “We hol­i­dayed in Namibia at the Betta camp­site. There are quite a few cacti and at sun­rise you’ll snap pho­tos with a Mex­i­can feel. The Nauk­luft Re­gion is known for its beau­ti­ful sun­sets.” go! Drive & Camp says Bev­er­ley’s photo is a good ex­am­ple of a pretty sun­set with­out a sun in the photo. The clouds are golden yel­low, and just like with Elsie’s birds of prey, the sisal in the fore­ground makes the dif­fer­ence. Also, the cam­era’s flash went off, which means that in­stead of see­ing only the plant’s out­lines you can also see some of the de­tail on the leaves. It would look even bet­ter if you bal­anced the flash’s bright­ness with the light me­ter read­ing of the clouds, but that’s a bit high grade if you don’t want to get stuck in the tech­ni­cal side of things. The plant in the back­ground does di­vert your gaze, and the photo would look bet­ter if you stand to the left and then aim slightly more right to get only the sisal and the clouds in the frame.

Sam­sung WB30F; 24 mm-10xop­ti­cal zoom lens on 17,9 mm; 1/30 of a sec­ond; f5,4; ISO 100; with a flash.
