Yesterday it was kind of wet and crappy out. At around four o’clock, I decided to get over it and I headed outside to run a few errands. As I walked down my block, I looked up (I look everywhere now when I walk… a pleasant side effect of studying photography), and up above me in the trees I saw a beautiful sight. There were little water droplets hanging everywhere post rain and the light was reflecting off the little droplets, creating this lovely twinkly effect in the branches. Excited, I snapped a few pictures with my 50mm lens – here is one of those:
I took a bunch of these pictures, but none of them captured the beauty and magic that I saw in real life. I tried to blur the background out more so it wouldn’t be a distraction – but here, even with a setting of f/1.4, I still find the background fairly distracting. Don’t you? Then I remembered I had my 100mm macro lens with me, so swapped lenses and got closer to the droplets. And voila… I kind of love the way this one turned out. What do you think?
