Project 365, Day 21 ("In The Garden", Day 5)

I saw these berries the other day when I was taking the photo of the bird house, but when I took one then, I tried to take it hand held. The awkward position (fairly high) and bad light conditions then made it impossible to get a good shot. Not so this time! I grabbed my tripod and focused manually. It also helped that the sun was out this time.

The only issue I have with properly exposed pictures with lots of dark red in them, is that the red channel always blows in sRGB. I have yet to figure out how to prevent that without having to dial down the red and orange luminosity in ACR.

Lens and camera settings:
50mm f/2.0 @ f/4, 1/400 and ISO 100. Camera on tripod.

  1. This is a GREAt capture! I love the red against the tannish bokeh...
