Like many folks I often venture out away from home to capture photographs of various plants and flowers. Recently I reminded myself that all I have to do is open the patio door to find some backyard beauty to photograph.
NOTE: Click on images to enlarge.
I grabbed my two Nikon 1 J5s. I fitted one with a 1 Nikon 10-100mm f/4-5.6 zoom and the other with a 1 Nikon 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 zoom and a 21mm MOVO extension tube. Then I headed out to explore my yard.
This quick, little article features a selection of images captured that morning.
It serves as a simple reminder that we can find interesting photography subjects in our own backyards.
The next time you feel a bit uninspired, grab your camera and explore your immediate surroundings. What you find may surprise you!
All images in this article were captured hand-held using Nikon 1 J5 cameras and either the 1 Nikon 10-100mm f/4-5.6 zoom or 1 Nikon 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 zoom with a 21mm MOVO extension tube. All photographs in this article were produced from RAW files using my standard process of OpticsPro 11, CS6 and Nik.
