|January 2012: Experimenting with self portraits at the waterfall near my Scottish hamlet, using my new tripod!|
Photo geekery: I used a tripod and long exposure to capture the flowing waterfall like in this picture, and took other short exposure pics to capture individual droplets.
I also played around with the White Balance Shift/Bracket function, which takes three photos at once, emphasizing different colors. This photo is obviously green/blue. I have another version of the same photo which enhances the orange leaves and makes my hair look redder.
To compensate for the long exposure I had a narrow-ish aperture (okay, only about 9). I spent a while trying to guess the depth of field, but you can see I'm out of focus here. I had to stand as still as possible to cut down on blur. I also have some cool photos where I ran in and out of the frame and I look like a ghost.
I wanted to return in Spring and stand under the waterfall in a balldress but never got around to it. I think it would have created amazing pictures!
