In a Hurry

I was heading home from working on my guitar, and I was running a little late for an errand in which I had to pick a couple people up. It was raining. So, despite my time shortage, I busted out my camera and got a few photos of the raindrop-covered leaves on a tree.

There were better pictures in the area, better lenses for the job, and taking the photo properly would have yielded better results by far. Nevertheless, this didn't turn out too bad.

Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/20
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 55mm

I'll have to go back sometime with a tripod, a macro lens, and about 10 minutes. Hopefully I'll be able to try some different angles, etc. Also, even if it's not raining when I go back, there's a dirty trick I can use—you just bring a spray bottle of water. It looks very convincing. :)

  1. Yes, I have done the spray bottle trick! :) I like the rainy leaves in your shot - nice depth and bokeh too! It feels like a rainy day in this shot.
