Today's Verse


Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

JudyB: Take care in the heat, try to stay cool! Jul 05 2019 11:36am

Carol: Jane:  Super nice to see you posting.  Jun 26 2019 6:40pm

Jane Walker: Hi everyone!  I just want y'all to know that I'm here and will, one day, be up to posting again.  things have been getting in the way, is all Jun 25 2019 4:45pm

Janet: This is a great day to praise the Lord! Jun 24 2019 2:31pm

Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature - St. Augustine



Interesting subject.  Can I make a couple of suggestions when shooting something like this?

The problem with this kind of situation is the background is quite cluttered and doesn't add to the composition.  One solution to that would be try to throw the background out of focus by using a very shallow depth of field.  Select the widest aperture available on your lens.  Also use your longest focal length and get back as far away from the subject as you can and zoom in till it fills the frame as you have it now.  That will do two things firstly it will help make the background go out of focus.  It will also introduce foreshortening so that you have less objects in the background.

The other suggestion I have is to just concentrate on the details of the tractor rather than the whole thing.  I shot of the just the engine, a single headlight or the grill would make for really interesting shots.

Hope that helps
