  1. #1

    Default butterfly

    taken at the zoo, with a 50mm lens, around 2pm.
    hows the composition of the photograph?
    should i have included the entire hand in? leaving out the negative space on the right?
    thanks guys!

    I think there is too much hand to the left. More black maybe better.

    seem like the focus is off...
    the focuse is partly taken by the thumb and the left side of the butterfly...

    it will be good to fully focus on the butterfly

    i find the long frame uncomfortable.

    you have correctly focussed on the butterfly's eyes (though they are small and dark and not easy to see) you'll probably need more DOF (increase f stop) or use flash to fill in more details on the butterfly..

    Interesting...how is it that u got a butterfly to land on ur hand?

    Contrary to cropping out the black area, I feel that cropping out most of the hand is better.

    the hand in the picture belonged to my classmate, and it only stayed on her hand for like 2 secs, was quite fortunate to be just next to her to capture the moment.

    i was on AF at that time, and so focus maybe off since i aimed a little too low.

    as for dof, you guys think its too shallow?
    i was on f1.4 i think, thus everything else seemed blur ,
    next time perhaps i should have used f2 instead?[i doubt there will be a next time though!]haha

    thanks guys for your comments!

    anyone with experiences of shooting butterflies?care to share?
    very delicate yet beautiful creatures!
