The latest of our camera club “close season” outings was to a small nature reserve between Hitchin and Barton-Le-Clay to attempt some butterfly and wild flower photography. Despite the fact that the nature reserve is only around 20 minutes drive from my house, where I’ve lived for 30 years, I hadn’t previously known it was there!
This wasn’t something I’d done before. Learning point number one – should have taken a tripod! I was thinking that I’d be fine as I had an F2.8 lens but I soon realised that I wasn’t getting enough depth of field – and should probably have stopped down to around F11. At least now I know the place is there, I can go back and have another go.
