Leaves in a Mirror Image
I haven’t been able to shoot much in the last few days–unfortunately paying work. 😉 But when I’m out, I’m primarily focusing on doing more abstract work, and I’m not exactly sure on the results just yet, so I’m not showing those as of now.
In between those abstracts, I’m still noticing some interesting things. Yesterday i took this photo. I was just trying to capture a pretty leaf with some out of focus leaves in the background. I was using different apertures to get different depth of field in the photo. You might think that in this photo, the background leaf is really out of focus, but this was shot at F/8 (with my 105mm macro lens), and at the more wide open apertures (lower numbers) the background was much more blurred (to the point where you couldn’t tell there were other leaves).
Anyhow, I picked this photo, as it looked like the background leaf was a reflection of the foreground leaf, where they touch at the bottom. They aren’t. And I just think that is so cool. (:
Shot with my Nikon 105mm macro lens at f/8.
