Autumn Fern

model: Canon EOS 20D software: Adobe Photoshop CS Macintosh capture date: Friday, November 5, 2004 2:18:13 pm exposure program: Aperture Priority ISO speed: 100 shutter speed: 1/40 aperture: f7.1 exposure bias: +0.0 metering: Pattern flash: OFF - Compulsory flash mode focal length: 100.0 It briefly stopped raining today so I managed a walk in the forest with the new 100mm f2.8 macro. One thing I quickly discovered is that macro shots of virtually any form of vegetation when there is (even a bit of) wind is a tricky and frustrating experience...! At close distances even the slightest movement changes the focus, so it's a continuous repositioning/refocussing. I did manage a couple I'm fairly happy with, and this is my favorite. I really am a great admirer of ferns, they're just so fractal looking! And they have this fantastic color cycle over the year, love them.
