Horse 1

Horse 1

I had the camera set on a low f-stop and high shutter speed. The trees shaded us and I knew the bright background light would blow out. There is just enough variation in the background to suggest a colorful pasture. ISO 100—1/250—f2.8

Red and Green Bloom

Red and Green Bloom

I was channeling the rule of thirds when I shot this blooming flower. ISO 100—1/100-f2.8
Sky High Flower

Sky High Flower

I laid down on the ground and manually focused on the flower. Then I put the camera down in the same spot on the ground and tilted it toward the sky. ISO 100—1/125—f3.2
Potted Beauty 1

Potted Beauty 1

I lost myself shooting in this garden. I kept moving things around, holding them in the air, tilting this way and that. ISO 100—1/200—f4.0

Peacock Feathers

Peacock Feathers

These feathers were just lying on the porch. I stood them up and did some adjusting until the composition came to life. ISO 100—1/80—f2.8
Skull

Skull

I saw this hanging and was transported from my location on the “tan-handle” of Florida to the dusty Southwest. ISO 100—1/80—F2.8
Naturalist

I love the color palette in this shot and like the previous ones I adjusted the flowers and moved around on the porch until I saw perfection. ISO 100—1/60—f2.8
Stack

Stack

I loved shooting in this greenhouse. Diffused light poured in like milk. ISO 100—1/500—f3.5
Roots

Roots

I adjusted my lens a number of times trying to sort out the focal point. The rustic tones and worn wood co-existed in simplicity. ISO 100—1/60—f2.8
Wagoneer

Whenever I photograph kids in their element I get shoot from their level. ISO 100--1/500—f 3.5

Kids don’t still very long for photos and Sophie was no exception. ISO 100--1/100--f 2.8

Naturalist

by Emily W

I shot these photos in the spring time about an hour outside Jacksonville, FL. Let’s just call it the middle of nowhere. But once you arrive, you are in the middle of everything. Shade was plentiful and the green house had a soft diffused light all day.  I didn’t have to compensate for harsh highlights and shadows. I didn’t even have fill cards to bounce additional light. I didn’t have a shot list or schedule to keep. Everything looked amazing through the 90mm lens; I didn’t take it off the entire trip.

I love the angle on your Naturalist shot. Looks like a shot that could be in Homes and Garden! Stacie at Tamron.
