Random Practice Shots

Project Description

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I love shooting Macro and Landscapes, this class seemed like it would sort of combine them. I am posting my photos in hopes that I will get comments and Critiques

What you will need

  • I have a Nikon D5200. For these shots I was using a Sigma 105 mm Macro lens.

Q&A with Maria Gieske

Rob Sheppard asked:
There is a limit to how much text I can input, so here are some ideas on things to work with: 1. Always look all around the photo, not just the area where the subject is. Live View can be a big help for this. 2. Experiment with shooting your lens wide-open (I think yours is f/2.8) for really shallow depth of field. This will help isolate and define your subject. 3. Watch out for high contrasts or bright areas around the edges of the photo. They will always be distractions. Rob
