Experimenting with Light

I decided to have a little play around with the light as the sun was low in the sky… It was still high enough to produce quite harsh light and therefore still light enough to see what interesting things might happen with the lens.

First I began with the Alliums, the aim to have as many in one shot as possible and play around with depth of field and see what ‘bokeh’ effects might happen…

And then I moved onto the Forget-me-not… I know I’ve already taken far too many shots of these, but just bear with me.

At first things were a little pedestrian, some nice bokeh going on in the background though, but I want more!

Oooooh, what happened here??! Check out the colours!
Now lets see what else we can get with this light…
Mmm, what’s going on at the bottom? Something interesting happening down there…
Look in the background, somehow other stems are being magnified…
Trying to get both background and foreground in focus.
Almost there!
Ok, I’ve no idea how this is happening… I assume the light is being reflected inside the camera and lens.

Mmmmm, a fun 10 minutes there…
