Project: GREEN

by Dawn Hester April. 13, 2020 188 views

For the past couple of months I’ve been mentoring a friend that loves photography. The other day he emailed me with attached images and said (not his direct words) that he went out again with his camera gear with no plan. I emailed back and told him that was fine BUT you can create a plan once you get there.

That’s what I did last week. After I took care of some morning errands I decided to walk some laps before heading back in for the day. As I was walking I began to shoot anything that I saw interesting. Midway through my second lap I decided I needed a project. I decided to focus on GREEN. There were some colors here and there but I want to go back when hopefully they’re in full bloom or close to it. Once I decided on GREEN the next few laps I went back to those same areas to make sure I didn’t miss anything and/or find a better composition, etc. I focused on shallow depth of field hoping to separate a lot of the green that was in the background or just pull a little bit of color out that was on the edges. It was a little breezy but that help me focus more and try to stop the movement. Again just seeing what works and take it from there.

Gear used: Fujifilm X-H1, XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro lens.
