Week 10

Settings: f/5.6, 1/1250 second, ISO 400

Set up. This is one of the first photographs I took with my new DSLR camera. I was on a day out at Tatton Park, experimenting with depth of field in AV mode.

Opinion. I set myself the challenge of working out how to do selective colouring on a black & white photo this week & thought this image was a good starting point. Originally I’d considered highlighting all the lavender in the foreground but then chose to only bring out the colour in one of the flowers & crop the photo a little closer to make it stand out. I think the overall effect is quite good although it would have more impact if the colour was brighter (eg. a red or yellow) as this would show up better against the dark background.
