During the 2020 lockdowns, I spent a lot of time wandering around the garden seeing what I could photograph. This picture of a robin was shot with my Nikon D750 with a 28-300 lens fitted. I probably cropped the image as well to get the close-up. It’s a fairly good image. Notice the background is blurred because I shot it with a wide aperture. The widest aperture on that lens is f/4.5 so that I would have shot it at f/4.5 – wide open.
This picture of a trio of pigeons was also shot in the summer of 2020 as the lockdowns and restrictions saw me spending a lot of time in the garden. I also did a little gardening!
When I saw three ambulances in the street outside I took a shot. This shot perhaps tells the story of that period of time more than the others. This was shot at about f/8 and again with the Nikon D750. In the early part of the 20th century, photographers often took shots from the upstairs windows. I occasionally do it and always get a good shot.
I also photographed my food a lot and shared the photos on Facebook and Instagram. This was shot handheld and I remember sharpening this picture in editing to try to give the beans a more individual look.
