I had about two hours of good macro time with an overcast diffusely lit sky before getting some great rays of sunshine. It was really shaping up to be a lovely day by the time I left and spent the rest of the day inside my work building.
I actually prefer macro water droplet shooting when it is overcast - less potential of blown out highlights.
I'm proud of myself, though. I'm better at estimating shutter speed than knowing instinctively what aperture to shoot at. Saturday, I focused on using Aperture Priority and I really liked how my pictures came out. Still learning and loving it!
Now that I'm done being wordy, here's my favorite of the week:
And several runners up - it was tough.
I don't know what I love more - other flowers in the water drops or the water drop within a water drop. A lot of new looks for me!
I can't wait for the flowers to change - I've been shooting tulips, daffodils and pansies... what will be planted in those well-watered beds next? Stay tuned... these won't be my last macro pictures of the season!
