Sorry that it's been so long since I blogged. I've been crazy lately with so many changes going on. I can't wait until things stop changing. ;)
Today's entry involves helping a background with a background. I like the blossoming trees, but the brown-sided house wasn't going to look that great behind the trees. A fellow photographer (Lee Larsen) was along and he suggested a background. I never put a background outside like that before, so that's the perfect opportunity and reason to do it. Great idea!
I used my 200 f2 lens at f4 along with a 2X teleconvertor, which makes it an effective f8. Why such a long lens? Well, if I didn't, I would have seen past the background with the wider angle of view. I first tried a 1.4X, for a focal length of 280mm. Not enough. I needed 400mm.
