There is something magical about bluebell woods in the springtime. I think it is that subtle blue of the flowers and the yellow green light from the sun as it passes through the spring time leaves of the beech trees. Therefore I was determined to get some shots before they died off and this weekend just gone was the last opportunity. With the domestic chores out of the way we set off mid afternoon to a secluded wood we know near Winchester.
It was a fabulous walk with glimpses of young deer and carpets of bluebells beneath the Beech trees. I managed to persuade Suzanne to stop photographing for ten minutes and I managed to get some great shots, my favourite of which is below where I framed Suzanne at 142mm. Using this focal length and an aperture of f2.8 I got5 the foreground and background to be softly out of focus thereby adding to the gentle dreamy feel and keeping the viewers focus on Suzanne. I set the ISO to ensure a shutter speed fast enough that the shot was pin sharp.
Hope you enjoy.
