“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.” ~ George Elliot
The lead image in this post is a focus stack, shot with my new Tamron 150-600 G2 lens. Which is a lot of equipment and processing to render such a “natural” image.
And on the day I shot this series, I was surrounded by a lot of photographers, many of whom I follow on social media. I loved the group experience!
But as usual (for me at least), I found myself distracted by light and color and water movement and quickly realized I was shooting less “natural” subject matter. Or at least, I began shooting what everyone else was shooting in my “own” way…
Hence the rest of the images I’m sharing. And I haven’t even begun working with the water abstracts from this shoot!
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE my froggy friend. I’m thrilled I got a more sharp than soft capture of him.
Yet the view my mind’s eye refused to stop seeing was about color and texture and shape, so much more than a slice reality. That’s my lens, my perspective, my creative voice. Just ‘tis.
What will you see the next time you view nature???
