As my Ph.D dissertation looms near (3 days!), my time available for blogging shortens. I'm trying to stay "bright" in my disposition!
Today was Day 13 of the #AmyShuttPhotoaday challenge, a photo-a-day project for this month coordinated by Amy Shutt of Amy Shutt Photography. Today’s theme was “bright.”
Luckily the sun was shining all day! So I took my Petzval lens outside for some artsy "bright" shots. In the shot above, taken straight up looking at the top branches of a mighty oak tree, I purposely threw the whole scene slightly out of focus.
I took the shot above with a Petzval lens, ISO of 100, shutterspeed of 1/500 seconds, and an aperture plate of 1/5.6. In Lightroom I played with the colors a bit, giving the scene a warmer and brighter tone.
I also love the bright sunlight shining through the branches of a dogwood tree below. The Petzval, especially in black and white, gives the photo a film quality that I love.
