Click on the picture to see the bag in the store. Bands of green shallow seas and blue deep channels off Vilanculos in the Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique (hence the “Archipelago Colours” title).
Take the bag with you wherever you go. They are so useful on the beach, at the mall, at school, just anywehere. The tote bag is machine washable, available in three different sizes, and includes a black strap for easy carrying on your shoulder. All totes are available for worldwide shipping and include a money-back guarantee.
It’s spring and there are lots of green things around. A bit of rain and the right light through the clouds does wonders for a few interesting photos.
The green leaf is a new leaf on a strawberry plant which has just caught a bit of rain. the focus was carefully adjusted to keep the background out of focus with just one leaf left sharp. I just like the way the leaf glows in the afternoon light.
The hydrangea, below, is interesting. As the petals get older they go from pink to green. Here they have had a bit of rain and sun.
How to Take the Photo
The first part is to see the effect of the light on the leaves and water. A wide aperture narrows the depth of field to throw the background out of focus as much as possible, being careful to keep all of the details sharp. These were both shot handheld. Sometimes you will need a high ISO, or, even better, a tripod to capture natural light photos like this.
