Perfection (Three Photographs)

PerfectionTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Perfection is overrated, especially when it means hanging over a stem of grass waiting for the wind to die down so you can photograph some obscure bug. In fact I was not at all surprised that the depth of field and movement worked against these photographs, I was just hoping for tack sharp images with wonderful creamy background. The results, however, are not without merit in and of themselves and probably do this bug better service than a tack sharp capture would do.

  1. Love the second one! Looks like one of those buggies that run around on Mars! And it has a kind of melancholy look about it. : )) trees

  6. I like the mood in these, agree there’s something to be said for not getting the tack sharp image each time…..

  7. In the circumstances you got some good shots. I like how the blur adds movement adds contrast to the bugs stillness.

    • Sometimes sharp is overrated. I have shots that are fine but these had a twist.
