Falling Leaves Experiment
Lens: DA 40mm Limited Camera: K-X Photo Location: Park ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F2.8

I had been toying with the idea of falling leaves for about a week. I have seen so many shots on flickr on falling leaves that I wanted to give it a try. I present you 3 shots that came out pretty well. Its all about the timing with these sorts of shots... Anyhow it was a lot of fun, my daughter had a blast getting leaves dumped on her head... Thank God for kids

So here are the shots... I only wish I had a finishing shot ... but that is why there is tomorrow

This pics are without any editing.. Straight from my StormTrooper (K-X)




I used my trusty DA40mm for the shot and used the pop up flash on the camera (flash exposure comp set to -0.3)

Anyhow we had lots of fun... The wife really enjoyed tossing the leaves up into the air and my daughter just had a blast...

Any comments on what I can do next that would make the photo better please let me know...

Exif data is available on my flickr page... thanks!

#2 stands out as the leaves appear almost 3D in presentation. Great series, she looks like she is having a great time posing for Dad. Love them a lot now as next week she will be asking for thew car keys.....Cliff
