Photography around the Wetlands

Don’t forget to click on any picture and view them in gallery mode.

The above images are examples of some of the plant life growing at the edges of one of our flood plain wetlands here at Homewood.  I like photographing there since it is close and the scene changes throughout the year … and they don’t keep cutting it down.

I like photographing small things, details, etc.( like above) with a 60 mm lens at an aperture of 2.4.  At a distance of three feet, the depth-of-field (DoF) is only approximately plus or minus a third of an inch.  That doesn’t leave much room for error with focusing but it does do a nice job of eliminating extraneous background.  But, as I have mentioned before, it has to be a still day with no wind to photograph plants in this manner.
