I took these shots with my Canon 6D using a variety of lenses, namely the Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro and 70-200mm f/4L IS. Sometimes it’s hard to see the beauty of a place, especially when you’ve been there practically every day. But I’ve trained myself to spot a potential picture. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I end up deleting most of them in a photo shoot. Nonetheless, it’s a fun and learning experience. For the above picture I saw this large fern perched on the river bank. Using a large aperture of f/4 on my 70-200mm I focused on it while blurring the background to make the subject stand out. In the picture below I saw this glorious reflection in the lily pond. I positioned the sole lily flower on the intersection of thirds to add a touch of pink among the sea of predominant green. Shot with my Canon 70-200mm f/4L.
(Above) I happened to be at the right place at the right time for this sunset. I let the camera judge the exposure and it came out with a perfect silhouette of the trees. Believe it or not, I used my 100mm f/2.8L Macro lens to take this shot!
(Below) The wind was picking up; fortunately I had my tripod with me and shot this using a slowish shutter speed, which blurred the movements in the water. 70-200mm f/4L.
(Above) Not many people know where this is, but it’s a lovely place to take some pictures, especially with the sloping gradient of the ground. I focused on the tree and placed it at the intersection of thirds. 70-200mm f/4L.
