Winter’s Texture

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography


Embracing winter is one of the keys to surviving and keeping one’s sanity in the cold north.  Being willing to see beauty in the ice and snow, be willing to endure the frigid temps and howling winds will open the photographer to rewarding opportunities.

Nikon D610 and Tamron 90mm Di SP Macro Lens – 1/250 @ f/7.1 – ISO 200

I wanted to show the detailed texture of these fern leaves so I decided to use the full frame sensor on the Nikon D610 to maximize the detail in the shadow areas.  Please note although the aperture is set to f/7.1 the depth of field is still very shallow when using any sort of macro or close up lens combined with a full frame sensor.  Just a little tip to keep in mind for when you go out and shoot macro.
