One of those days I am looking forward to. I can feel them coming.

If you think birds in flight are challenging, try insects like bees in flight. Quite a different story and in my experience harder.

One common question about insects is where to find them, even in the city. Look for them along the side of bushes and trees, along the water, on the edge of paths. Move slowly, watch for movement or something out of place.

 I find bees are more easily recognizable from the side or at an angle than face on.


Bee No.2

Most bees I see are so busy they ignore me even if I get close.

Skies are often an issue in photos so the software gurus keep coming up with ways to replace them during editing. These were done with Skylum NEO.

The first art exhibition that I can remember was of the work of Piet Mondrian. This photo reminds me of his work.

This is a silver button shot in colour. I noticed a nearby table lamp was giving interesting colour to the button so I added some colour filters for effect.

I don’t plan to stop experimenting – it’s half the fun.

When we see something that reminds us of great works of art (Monet’s Water Lillies for example) we should know we are onto something.

Framing is one of those things you learn. There are rules to start with but soon forgotten for approaches that better match what you see. Shoot wider and taller than your imagined crop, give yourself room to experiment.

Who are you shooting for? Pros need to know their audience’s desired outcome. Amateurs just get to shoot photos we want to shoot.

Even a slight vignette amplifies the subject and focuses the viewer’s eye.
