Summer field abstract


IMG_9996While on a family camping trip we came across a field of oil seed rape with poppies growing in it. It just had to be photographed. Since I hadn’t intended to spend much of the trip on photography I was travelling light with just a 1.6 crop DSLR, a 10-22mm and a 24-105mm lens.

I wanted to play with an impressionist style and was happy with this image and one other.

To get the look that I wanted I experimented with some longer exposures, hand holding the camera and timing the shot for when the variable breeze moved across the flowers nearest me. Once I was back at home I chose the best of the bunch.

Technical details:
Camera: Canon 40D
Lens: 24-105mm f4 L IS at 105mm
Exposure: 1/4 sec at f22
ISO: 100
