Night Shot - Garden Plants

Posted by

Here is a night shot of some Sensiveria (I think) plants in our yard a few nights ago......I figured it was high time to start training myself for nighttime and long exposure images...;-). The glow on the plants is simply due to their colouring..... no flash was used. This was at iso 800, 300mm, f16, 13 second exposure...
As you can probably discern by my above settings, I have LOTS of learning to do ;-0

NIKON D800 13 second F/16.0 ISO 800 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
