Sorry I have not posted lately, work has been getting in my way and a lot of pictures to sort and edit!
I am an avid wildlife photographer and I usually take photos of birds or insects but I have been collecting a few photos lately of plants. To make the photo more interesting, defocusing is a nice technique but also slow shutter speeds to give motion blur. Some of these were taken with my 100mm macro, which can focus close on details not always seen. However I have been shooting with my 400mm prime and it gives awesome blur and bokeh, compressing the foreground and background. This in my opinion is as important as the subject itself, a bad background makes a bad picture, for example if there is too much background clutter. That problem can usually be solved by getting down low and throwing the background out of focus. I do not know if these photos actually work so some feedback would be much appreciated.
I have some new projects going so I hope to post some bird photos soon. Thanks for reading.
