Holland Day 3: Fish-eye Lens Fun at Keukenhof
Thanks to Marc Chang Sing Pang, a cool dude I met on twitter, we spent a wonderful morning at the garden at Keukenhof.
I took about 200 photographs, but many looked quite similar to the pictures I had seen on postcards. So, for a uniqe look, I used my Canon 15mm lens on my Canon 5D Mark II, held the camera at ground level, and took a few shots.
A few tips for today:
- You don't always have to be looking through the camera's viewfinder for a good shot.
- Set a small aperture for great depth of field.
- Always look up.
- Take the postcard shots, and then take creative shots.
- Have fun.
I'll be sharing more composition tips on my upcoming class on composition for Kelby training: Composition - the strongest way of seeing.
Thank you, again, Marc for being our personal tour guide - and friend.

P.S. I also shot some macro pictures. Here's a favorite.
- Tell the Story With Different Lenses.
- Shoot back-lit shots.
