Assignment 3: Macro


Melissa Johnson: bee.jpg


This picture of a bee fulfills requirement 3, bugs. I stood next to a plant that the bees seemed fond of and got many shots of blurry bees before finally getting this one. The picture was taken with a kit lens (18-55mm) at 55mm. The camera was in aperture priority mode in order to keep aperture as wide open as possible for this focal length (which is 5.6 at 55mm) in order to achieve a shallow depth of field. During post-processing, I cropped, rotated, and sharpened.
