Bluebell Woods Walk

During the spring I decided to go for a walk through a woodland area full of bluebells. I took my camera with me (of course) and decided to experiment with different apertures. I had so much fun and the flowers were so beautiful and smelled amazing!

The first photograph that I chose from this shoot was taken from the base of a tall tree. I was experimenting with aperture with this image because I wanted to see the effect a high or low aperture would have on the overall look of the picture. I decided to use a small aperture because I wanted to show contrast with half of the tree being in focus while the other half was blurred. For this photograph, I used a shutter speed of 1/160, an ISO of 100, and an aperture of f/3.5.

The second photograph that I chose from this shoot is a close-up shot of a single bluebell among the long grass. I like this image because it is simple and has only one main focus. I also like the contrast between the bright green grass and deep purple flower. For this image, I used a shutter speed of 1/60, an ISO of 3200 and, an aperture of f/22.

The third image that I took from this shoot shows a row of bluebells lining up against a fallen tree trunk. I liked this photograph because of the opposition between the thick, ridged tree trunk and the small, delicate flowers in front of it. For this photograph, I used a shutter speed of 1/80, an ISO of 2000 and an aperture of f/13.

I loved walking through the bluebell woods, getting to see and smell all of the beautiful flowers. Even if it was a bit cold!
