I'm going to drop this fresh green maple leaves shot into my Best of Japan Nature album. It remains a favorite from this spring even a month or so after I shot it.
This is a great picture. How did you get the depth of field and the focus like that. Just was wondering.
Thanks! I shot it with the 300mm f/2.8 L lens at f/4, because the leaves were quite close. This of course gives you a razor thin depth-of-field, as you can see. I then just lined up the leaves with a ball of light, which was a gap in the trees in the background.
Thats really cool. I thought for sure the effect was partially done in photoshop. So much to learn about doing stuff in camera. Thanks for the info.
You're welcome. I do very little to my images in Photoshop. I use Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro 2 for B&W, and Color Efex 4 for some of my color images, but the majority of them are pretty much straight out of the camera.
I like so very much of main part of photographer to do photography not so much post processing, I think it should be 70:30=100 ratio, (70% photography : 30% post processing) its enough, not reverse. This is the beauty of photography, I like so very much to you are confident with your photography not 2nd step of PP.
If you include the black and white images I do, that ratio is probably about right for me too, but most of what I do has virtually nothing done to it. I'm just very careful with my framing and exposure, and am usually happy with the image out of camera, or maybe with a few tweaks of the sliders in Lightroom.
This is the more great thing that you do little tweaks, I like so very much this approach of photographer, Mr. Martin you and like you photographer I must say "The Real Photographer". I am much happy to hear your artistic approach.
Thanks! As you saw with my B&W yesterday, I certainly push them some, but my color work is generally quite natural, with the occasional exception. Thanks for stopping by! :)
