I wanted to add some more fun content to this site and thought creating something that reappeared weekly would be something cool to look forward to.
I wanted to create a Photo of the Week post. Each Wednesday, I’m going to post a single photo and write out all of the specs used to create the photo and a little paragraph about my thoughts behind the photo. I hope this will help give some insight into the technical end of my pictures.
For my first photo, I want to show off a picture I actually took today at Happy Day Farm in Manalapan, New Jersey.
Shutter Speed: 1/200
Focal Length: 70mm
Camera: Canon 5D Mark IV
Lens: Canon 24-70mm f4.0
I was at Happy Day Farm earlier today in Manalapan, New Jersey shooting some headshots for a friend. They had a sunflower field that looked picture perfect, so during the day, I took some snaps of the sunflowers. The sunflower is one of the most recognizable flowers. Everybody instantly knows what a sunflower is just by seeing it. But there were a few sunflowers that were still blooming and something looked familiar, yet different about them. I decided to zoom in and get up close, trying to focus on the contrast between green and white. While not fully symmetrical, I tried to center the shot the best I could and focus on the patterns of the flower. It's one of the more unique photos I've taken in a while.
