Now that I think I’m getting the hang of the bokeh technique (although there is still so much, much more room for improvement!) I’ve started delving into capturing solar flares.
I’m working up a posting about it for tomorrow, but I just HAD to share this photograph separately! See if you can see why (hint: look at the top half of the photograph…)
Do you see it?
As I was out playing with my camera (uh… I mean being very professional and participating in a photowalk, of course!), I dropped below a fern and shot up towards the sky thinking “this could make a really cool shot” ~ that is, if I got the flare and with the fern in the foreground.
Imagine my surprise when I load the photo onto my computer and, enlarged, I see a face?! I mean, there are so many things I love about this photograph:
- the flare is perfect! (if I do say so myself!)
- the sun dog to the left side is a pretty cool capture!
- I even like the blurred fern and the tree crossing in the back of it!
But a face? A FACE! How freaking cool is that?! I haven’t been this stoked over a photograph for a long time! Really!
There you have it, folks! Proof of my Guardian Angel! (and a really cool photograph!)
