Week 5 - Day 29 - May 29, 2009, "Fern"

I didn't have a macro photo last week, so I decided to add one this evening. This is a tip of a fern growing in our back yard.

Lessons Learned:
  • Keep checking the ISO setting. I thought I had this set at 100, but it's actually 400.
  • Don't always trust your camera meter for the best shot. I set this to a much faster shutter speed than the camera suggested. This seemed to work very well for this shot. It subdued the background to a darker color, and enhanced the fern.
Photo details, Exposure time 1/250, Aperture f/14.0, ISO 400, Sigma Lens 70-300mm with a 3X Filter, tripod.
