Happy Earth Day!

In celebration of Earth Day, I went way out of my comfort zone and took a nature macro photograph. Sadly, I forgot to shoot in RAW as I had left my settings on JPG last time I used the camera. Bummer, especially since this was a planned B&W conversion.

Aperture: f/8
Shutter Speed: 1/10
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 100mm

I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out though. Not as much contrast as I like due to the JPG format, but I'm okay with that. Since I used my newest friend, the spray bottle, to take this, I should have no problem going for a redux later on.

One really interesting thing to do is zoom in to 100% on the full-res image by clicking the photo itself. Check out individual droplets. A lot of them have silhouettes of the tripod, me, the camera, etc. in them.
