Tried some new approach on photographing sakura. Having my camera recording this flowers for the past 6 years, I found that I have been taking the same kind of photos over and over again. I want to try something new this year, taking new approach, making them outstanding at least they won't end up as another normal, boring, sakura's picture.
And here are 3 photos that looks special to me, and the trick is pretty simple.
Push the EV value to +1, to over-expose the photo. The sakura is almost blown out by the back lighted sun, but it helps creating a smooth and dreamy feeling to the shot.
Maybe you will find that the background is too colorful and taking the focus away from the flowers, or maybe I should zoom in more on the flowers. But rules are meant to be broken, right? And I think the result is nice too.
I gone extreme for this last shot. Shooting at night, ISO set at 6400, turned the camera during its 1s exposure time. Should it be an entry? or deleted? Art? or completely blurred photo? It all depends on how you look at it.
Which one do you like the most? Let me know how you think about it. Thanks!!
