Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

INTRO: Last night, moments before slipping into bed, i came across the water bottle placed against a small tabletop night lamp... the lamp was illuminating the tiny droplets inside the bottle so well that, as a result, i gave into the temptation and took a few shots... this is one of them :)

THINKING: i carefully searched the inside of the bottle for droplets, looking for a somewhat more 'appealing' constellation/grouping to make the image interesting enough..

the original light was almost as warm as it is now, but instead of turning it blue in white balance or tinting, i chose to proceed with the same warm tone, only adding more to it :)

the aperture was set to f/22, anything less was rendering a soft bokeh, which i did not desire. the shot was handheld too, so i chose a shutter of 1/80 and AUTO ISO with spot metering :) the iso, in this case, was 2500 :) pretty clean eh?

THOUGHTS: macro lenses, i think, are a lot of fun. they offer the most creative possibilities for one to try! the same is the case with my new 60mm macro lens :) it keeps encouraging me to pick up the camera more and more often :) also, with macro lenses, one does not really have to worry about the light or the subject because more often than not, the subject can be almost anything in your house or the backyard while the light source can be compensated with small torch lights, candles, even cell phones!

Tamron makes a very good 60mm f/2 macro lens, it works great on small sensor cameras and makes for a great portrait lens :) can be had for $500 easily :)

thanks for viewing :) let's see what you think :)
