Last summer, I bought blueberries at the farmer’s market. They were warm, fragrant and bursting with flavor. They were beautiful and I wanted to take a picture of them. Before I could get a photo, they were gone.
Yesterday I was out shopping with my two little ones. My son saw blueberries and he was thrilled when I said yes. I knew their flavor wouldn’t be like the blueberries we had in June, but I knew we’d enjoy them. We have, but they are not summer blueberries. The winter blueberries were around long enough for me to get a photo.
For this photo, I used a macro lens. I started out with my 50mm because it was on the camera. I changed the lens because the 50mm needs to be at least 18 inches from the subject to focus. I wanted to get closer.
I took the berries out to the porch.
In order to get just one berry in focus, I put it up a little higher than the others.
