After seeing the work of Rick Lieder on Andrew Tyzack’s site: Bees in Art, I have been fascinated with perfecting my technical skill with my camera and also in capturing the subject to best effect. The following photos are some taken around the Farmlet yesterday. The first three are a Carpenter Bee on Lavender, the fourth is pumpkin blossoms.
1) Shot looks a bit fuzzy to me.
2) Seems a bit more focused, but…
3) Is same shot as 2 with some brightness reduction, increased contrast, which seemed to allow a closer sharper view. To much?
4) These are pumpkin blossoms after the rain. It is about 7:00 AM with overcast conditions and flash.
I hope you will leave some comments and suggestions (technical if you can) to help me with my quest towards the perfect shot of my subjects.
