Today's subject. Drumroll please .... ORANGES!
This shot was taken with the camera attached to a C-Stand directly over the oranges, with the camera tethered to a computer. What's nice about this way is there's less of a chance of a blurry photo. And, since the computer screen shows us the image (in all its glory), there's no need to rely on that teeny tiny LCD screen or the even smaller, viewfinder.
Being tethered is a win, win on many levels.
What tethering lacks is that rawness and adventure of holding the camera in-hand, headed outside on a hunt for fun close-ups of things like bumbles bees, flowers, inch worms and snow flakes.
There is a lot to love about both free-hand and tethered shooting. As the weeks go on we'll talk more about both. For today though, it's all about the oranges.
Dig those specular highlights!
In other news, I scored two educational photography magazines from the UK, sold at Barnes. More on those in another post.
In other, other news I might have a mild addiction to Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai. Have you tried that drink? Cold or hot. I love them both.
And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print.
