2019-01-30 – Nature Photography – Succulent – Aeonium (tree houseleek)

Today’s subject was the Aeonium (tree houseleek) on our patio in the backyard. The Aeonium is part of the Crassulaceae family of Succulent. As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops and focal lengths. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future. Today I used two different directions for shooting.

The Camera setting for the Sony SLT-A77V with a Sony DT 16-105mm F3.5-5.6 lens was:

  • Metering Mode: Auto
  • Drive Mode: Single shot
  • Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority Mode
  • Aperture setting: f/5.6, f/8, f/13 & f/16
  • Focal Length: 16mm, 35mm, 70mm & 105mm
  • ISO Setting: Auto
  • Focus Mode: Single Shot.

Below is the complete set of photos taken:
