Fern

FernTexture

Nikon D610 and Tamron 90mm Di SP f/2.8 Macro Lens – 1/250 @ f/7.1

I wanted to show the detailed texture of these fern leaves so I decided to use the full frame sensor on the Nikon D610 to maximize the detail in the shadow areas. I got lucky because it was an overcast day so the light was soft and diffused. Please note although the aperture is set to f/7.1 the depth of field is still very shallow when using any sort of macro or close up lens combined with a full frame sensor. Just a little tip to keep in mind for when you go out and shoot macro.

    • Thanks Alys, the time of day is really important but so is the quality of light. Did you ever notice when you are at a party in someones backyard and it turns out to be an overcast day when you get home and look at the photos you took nobody is squinting or their are no horrible shadows ? That’s because the light is soft and diffused and non directional, the clouds diffuse the point source of light (the sun). Sorry for rambling on, LOL. Have a great evening Alys 🙂
