A couple of weeks ago there was a thunderstorm moving across Cherry Hill. It was so strong that it caused power failure as well as downed tree in other townships. ┬áIt was a good thing that it happened before the end of the work day. I went to my car and sat for a little while and saw droplets all over my car, I decided to take a snap of the driver’s side mirror using my 100 mm f/2.8 Sony Macro Lens. My setting on this shot was F/4 at 1/100 sec and ISO is 200. I took a couple of shots and I tried shooting just a droplet with the intention of just focusing on the reflection on the droplet, however, I was not successful because my hands were too shaky at the time and the depth of field on this lens is so narrow, with a subtle movement throws the focus way off. Well I could have just done rapid fire and hoped for focused shot in the process but opted not to. It will rain again some other time and hopefully I will have something to show for the next time.
