F/3.5 (aperture/f-stops) 1/60s (shutter speed)
For this second Messing with Manual installment, I would like to share with you some photos of a necklace that I captured several weeks ago. There is no special story behind the necklace. Except that it made a good photo op. I've been trying to take objects outside and put them in places where they wouldn't normally be. The above picture was posed on a backyard pinwheel.
F/5 (aperture) 1/200s (shutter speed)
I started simple; I lay it first in the grass.
I thought this picture was a touch dark, but I'm not sure. What do you think?
Maybe I want a little too far the other direction on this one's lighting. I don't know if you've noticed but I seem to play more with the shutter speed than the aperture. I feel as though I have more range that way. Maybe more experienced photographers could tell me whether or not it would be better to try to change the aperture more.
The focus is almost there. :)
I loved how the chain ended up forming a heart shape.
Now we've moved to the bush.
Back to the pinwheel. :) Although it was kind of an odd place, it ended up being a pretty combination.
