So, a new challenge methinks, I have the tools at my disposal and those tools are not extensive, there will be my trusty D3300, now feeling a little worn but still delivering the goods. And my 35mm, f/1.8 prime lens (I love it sooo much!) the rest will just be gravy.
So, here we go, 35 shots over 35 days using only my 35mm lens and it might involve maths (did you know that 35×35=1225 and that 1225 is a Angel Number? Nope, nor did I and to be honest…. I don’t think so… But I will be sure to let you know if I experience any unexpected “energy” ((I won’t)) during my challenge.)
So, to my first shot, a fully charged hover fly on a daisy, I love these insects. They mimic the bad boys (wasps) they drink nectar rather than blood (horseflies) and they can beat their wings quicker than anything else in the animal kingdom.
Boom, there it is, a half decent blog post after the dismal attempts of the last 9 months…
And I’m going to include some techie bits too. f/1.8, 1/3200th sec, the shutter speed was so quick because it was the middle of the day and 1.8 is wide open so even at ISO 100 the amount of light in the exposure was extensive. I wanted to shoot at 1.8 to get a shallow depth of field so the focus was on the fly and the flower and throw the rest of the frame out of focus (Bokeh) so a compromise had to be made.
See you tomorrow! x
