Today has been a tricky one, where I live there is a beautiful river with some lovely views that I was hoping to be able to get to and take some shots, especially with the trying to take the same photo portrait and landscape because I have never really thought about taking the same image both ways. I look at a view and assume I know the best way to hold the camera. It is certainly something I will explore on more days out. Today however it has poured with rain all day, I have been stuck indoors whilst furniture has been delivered and getting cold and wet does my pain levels no good what so ever. I hope to revisit this task at a later date for some river views however undeterred I thought I would use the rain to my advantage and try some shots using my macro setting for the first time ever, I couldn’t prevent the reflection of the camera so any hints or tips on that would be welcomed.
Before I took the shots I thought the portrait images would take the better shots, especially as it would give me a greater chance of catching a running droplet;
Having taken these shots I then moved the camera and took them landscape, and I was surprised with the results; capturing more droplets and the garden in it’s truer shape just made the images in my opinion better.
