Week 28 Round River Farm


This week was farm focused, fortunately we had a good sized team to do all the harvesting. It was the first week of pea picking and it took hours to pick them all. Then we still had to harvest all the other vegetables. I really didn't know which photograph to pick as my favorite for this week but I do like the group photograph above and am happy with the quality I was able to attain with harsh late morning light, a bad angle(so the gardens would be in the background), and no shade. I ended up using a fill flash at close range to lift the shadows then brought them up even more in post processing. This week we also set off some small fireworks courtesy of Laura and found some baby grouse.

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…
