A scene from my garden this morning. I rented the Micro-Nikkor lens from Precision Camera here in town. I wanted to play around with macro photography in my yard now that the weather is nicer. I had never used a macro lens before. Takes some work getting used to.
I followed the same technique as yesterday’s Bloody Mary pictures to take some shots of plants in my front yard. It was a little more difficult to perform this operation in just sunlight as opposed to using an artificial light source in that I can’t control the sun.
I had to make sure there was lot of light on the item I wanted in focus and substantially less light on the background. And then I used a very fast shutter to make sure only the brightest objects were recorded clearly.
These native plants grow in the xeric shade garden on the east side of my house.
