Capturing Beauty

    When you are landlocked at home it is nice being able to find natural beauty in ones own backyard. Even if it is just the little things. Such as a neighbour's jasmine growing through the fence, an aging cobweb decorated plant, sunlight filtering through the leaves and branches of a dense tree, or my font development using dry, fallen leaves.
    I have been having fun playing with my camera manual settings. Some of my favourite settings are monochrome and tungsten lighting. There is a classiness when shooting in black and white. And of course, I like tungsten lighting for it's 'unreal' colour quality - strange and wonderful things happen to my photos.
