I’m drawn to trees and wood — constantly shooting them and studying them. I love the strength and the artistry that is inherent in wood.
I’ve been working with depth of field. I’ve looked at these images over and over, trying to decide if I like them. All were shot with my 85 mm lens, ISO 200, and f/3.5. I wonder if it would have been better if I had chosen a larger f/stop, thus making more of the tree or bark in focus. I think that maybe I have learned from this that I should bracket, giving myself choices. (OK, I think I know what I’m talking about, but I may not be using the correct terminology.)
