Week 9 Tennis


This week I got to visit my extended family, on my dads side. The entire family except mine lives in the same town so whenever we visit it it a family reunion. David of course got everybody together to go play tennis. Not knowing tennis very well myself I mostly photographed it but even that was challenging because I wasn't very good at predicting where people would be so I could be ready for the shot. I did manage to get a few nice ones though this one being my favorite, David looks like he is working so hard hehe. Earlier in the week back in Missouri I photographed at the dog park and got this neat one of some dogs roughhousing. I like how the dust surounds them creating haze and adding to the sense of motion and activity. I also finally made it out to the coal plant in town to make some photographs like I have been meaning to do for awhile. The totally blue sky was a little bit hazy but the timeing was good right before sunset.

I was fortunate enough that a storm blew threw and then was followed by some lightly overcast hours. It made for a great time to photograph. There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green. I also like ho the plane of focus puts the tip of the inner part of the flower, the water droplets on the petal, and a line of green leaves in focus. I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
