Blueberry Picking

Yesterday I went blueberry picking in a nearby family-owned farm, and of course I brought my camera along.

I got my basket ready.

And started picking!

We harvested about 2 pounds of blueberries.
I had some for breakfast, a little for snack, and some more for dessert.
Blueberry jam, anyone?

Then I found a peach orchard, so I picked a peach for tasting.
Okay, they are not quite ready yet but I had to make sure.

You might hear this a million times already, but natural light is the best light source. Natural light = your best friend in photography. From my kitchen experience, you probably understand. However, on a sunny day like this, pictures could become too bright...almost like overexposed. Like this sunflower.

And this:

I learned to move around and find the best spot where the light is not reflecting back directly. At the same time, I made sure my shadow is not in the picture.

You see what I mean?

Have a great weekend!
