Week 35 Crop Dusting


This week was a great week for photography. I have started college and am doing an AAS photography program. One morning as I was driving to class I saw this crop duster plane flying around right next to school. I have seen crop dusters working before but never from this close. It was amazing watching the plane swoop down low that it looked like it was riding directly on the ground then when the end of the field arrived it would pull up hard at the absolute last minute barely lifting above the tree line. I decided it was worth being a few minutes late to class so I stopped and made some photographs and I like how these three turned out. Earlier this week I also did some photography down at the Mississippi River just a block away from my apartment and got some nice portraits of Laura and myself. Finally the last photograph is from right outside my door where there is some construction and they had a big pile of signs all with those flashing lights and I thought it was so neet seeing them all together blinking in different patterns.

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…
