his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!
The other day I found the book Photographing the Natural World by Heather Angel on Buster's bookshelf. I read it straight through and I think I picked up a few tips. She talks mainly about using film, not digital, but what she says about using natural light is very helpful to me.
"Use backlighting to increase the vibrance of colorful petal or leaves viewed against a neutral background or a shadow area. Late in the day, front lighting can be very dramatic. It also enhances warm colours."I have noticed the catkins on this bush outside my window several times. I think it's a Black Willow but I'm not sure. This is the first time I was able to go outside and take a photo right when I noticed them looking remarkable. This was late afternoon on an overcast day.
