Fall Leaves 2016


I decided to try something different this time. A photo gallery. I was at St. Martins University in Lacey, Washington yesterday shooting some fall leaves photos.  This is a great opportunity to take advantage of color contrast, where you have warm and cool colors together in a photo.  Blue skies and green foliage in the background of yellow and orange leaves definitely adds something to the photo.

If you check the captions, you’ll see I was using stupid-slow shutter speeds on some of these photos, but Canon’s image stabilization built into the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L and the EF 16-35 f/4L is quite incredible.  I am seriously impressed.  Raising the ISO would be a more sure way of getting sharp hand-held photos, but I wanted to test the limit. That last photo at 1/8 sec at 72mm is insane!  I should NOT be able to get a sharp hand-held photo at those settings.

Don’t forget to click on the photos to see a larger version and get the full effect.
