2019-02-22 – Nature Photography – Plants – Asparagus Foxtail Fern

Another rain-free day which is very cold and very windy. Today’s subject is our Asparagus Foxtail Fern that grows in our back and front yard. This set was taken in our backyard.

As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops, focal lengths and, two directions. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future.

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/11 & f/16
  • Focal Length: 16mm, 35mm, 70mm & 105mm
  • ISO Setting: Auto
  • Focus Mode: Single Shot.

Below is the complete set of photos taken:
