We had the most beautiful Sweet Clover this year because we had so much rain. In many places it was over 5 feet tall!
I decided to do something a bit different than normal for me. I typically shoot with my aperture wide open. Depending upon the lens (f/1.8 to f/4) and rarely do I close it more than that. But sometimes, when you’re trying something new, you should. And if you’re capturing a landscape and you want the detail in every portion, the more closed the aperture, the more detail you capture. The more wide open, the shallower the depth of field (that’s what makes a subject pop), I’ve been playing with neutral density filters (which could be a post in and of themselves). The photo below was taken with a ND filter. They usually require a longer exposure time — as evidenced by my 1/40 setting below.
1/40, f/16, 45mm, 0EV, ISO 100, Flash did not fire, Center Weighted Average.
