100 ISO

by Hilary Halliwell May. 03, 2021 134 views

So the 52 Frames challenge this week is 100 ISO—more challenging than it seems. I usually shoot at angles that make using a tripod difficult, so I experimented with other means of supporting the camera at slower shutter speeds, working with flash, and I tried some creative wide aperture shots. I liked this challenge because it forced me to check my settings for each and every shot—no aperture priority autopilot.

My first image was of an emerging succulent plant that had survived the winter and a colder than usual spring. The others were macro shots of a water bottle using flash and placing colored objects place behind the bottle.

For the succulent, I used spot metering to obliterate the background and give the image a soft, almost high key look

Nice captures of the bubbles in the water bottle. My favorite is #1, the bubbles stand out with that color.
