Week 39 Fall


This week I went on a school out-trip where we all photographed the fall colors in a natural preserve. I made a lot of photographs I like and really enjoyed using the scattering of ponds in my photographs. I also was really excited when I found this tree that was dripping sap. It was in an area that had burned recently and from the burned areas of the tree loads of sap was suspended beautifully. 

Also this week there was student success day at Central Lakes College. It involves many workshops and events all in a day free from regulare classes. The star show this year was a hypnosis. It was exceedingly fun watching and photographing the volunteers as they "watched" scary or funny movies, tried to separate their hands, touched their noses, forget their name and the number 4, and thought they were 5 years old to name a few things. It was a blast for the audience and for the volunteers they said it felt like they had taken a long nap and they didn't remember much. WOW.

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…
