Project today was actually a backup plan. Went to shoot birds but they were not awake yet apparently. My backup plan was to shoot flowers and plants with a 100-400 extended out, not something I would normally do or even think to. Goal was to get a feel for focal length, and focus distance, while creating the opportunity for interesting compositions. Cropping in post should be a pre-vision and tool. I had wrote in my journal a comment @Gary A. mentioned to me a few times when I was wining like a little girl about not using a lens. He said you don't use it because you don't use it. My three favorite today. XT2, 100-400. Custom velvia simulation mode. Close to SOOC other than maybe a pre vision crop being limited by focus distance of lens. 1. 2. 3.
