Ready for my close up

ISO 100, 54mm, 1/100 sec., f/3.5

Summer colors are starting to fade in the woods.  The dry weather is merely hastening the process and the recent, small amount of rain just isn’t going to revive the foliage.  We’re surrounded by a sea of green for months, so much that it disappears from our sight until suddenly it’s gone and we’re left wondering where the green went as the fall colors explode into our senses.

Light dappling through a forest is like your personal studio for close-ups of objects.  Pick the background you want, the highlight on the subject, the aperture for a short depth of field and you’ve created a natural portrait.
