I am in love with the buttercups in the field behind our house. I desperately wanted to get some pictures of Sarah in those buttercups before whoever chops that grass has a chance. Sunday night was a beautiful evening, so I took Sarah outside for a little experiment.
I was having some trouble with focusing. I was intentionally shooting into the sun for a different light effect, but the focusing was giving me trouble. These are by far my two best shots.
The effect I wanted was there, but her face is not as sharp as I want it to be.
With some help from a great photography friend and a bit of research, I discovered that I should have probably switched to manual focus, which was my instinct, but I didn’t quite dare. So, we will try again on the next beautiful evening we can…before those buttercups become cow feed.
