The nice remarks on my mouse by some of u started me thinking. I do not intend to give photolessons
In my small overpopulated country we are not blessed with
virgin landscapes and easy to shoot big animals. Therefore
we are forced to try to photograph without human interference.
That means u must take the time when trying to frame a object
and i have learned to try to do different things with a object.
In Holland, due to the lack of abovementioned we do a lot of
macro. Then u can show the small wonders and isolate it from
its background (no human activities)
I will try to demonstrate with three pics of the same mouse.
This was were i found it. 24 mm lens. I did put nicely on the tree.
This is with a 100 mm macro. Same mouse, same tree.
This is what i call a headon shot. Tried to do something with the angle from where i took the shot. This mouse is DEAD
The same mouse, but arranged. Put it somewhere else. Another angle again and putting some coloured leaves here and there. Now its is a beautifull mouse. Taking a nap
One thing when doing macro. We call it weeding in the garden.
There is always something in the way, or a some distracting object in the frame.
Macro is a lot of fun (hard work) and u can do it almost anywhere.
