17.09.12 - Just Grass Man!
I took this early yesterday morning before the dew disappeared, and posted it on my Facebook page where it got quite a reception! I think these shots are a lot like the night image I posted yesterday, in that people think they are a lot more complicated to achieve than they really are.
There are no filters here, no photoshop, no tricks at all. Just a long lens, creating a shallow depth of field, looking directly towards the sun, and the water droplets do the rest. There is an element of pot luck with these in that where you actually focus can affect the image, and the baubly bokeh is unpredicatble, so take a few shots and see which one you like best. I took four pics, all very similar but slightly different.
These are great in the Autumn when you have some colourful leaves in the grass to add another dimension. I was also trying to get the dog to pose in the distance but he was more interested in climbing on my back while I was laid on the ground!
