Dew Photography With Your Samsung: webs

Dew is quite a common occurrence at this time of year, and with all the foggy weather we've been having, it's been around at more sociable times. So, before you head off to work in the morning, why not head out and photograph some close-up dew shots?

 

Subject

With the recent foggy and damp weather the majority of the UK has been experiencing, dew is something that forms on a lot of potential subjects for your photos outside, Common subjects include blades of grass, plants in the garden and fallen leaves. For something a little different, try shooting dew on the car, or on metal gates and handles. The formations of drops create interesting patterns which can make for great abstract images, while the plain background of your car's colour will help to keep the image undistracted. 

 

Kit

As far as lenses go, a dedicated macro lens such as the 60mm f/2.8 NX iFunction Macro will help you to get in close and the shallow depth of field will enable you to isolate the subject, and create some nice bokeh effects, too. This lens is compatible with all the cameras in the Smart NX range. 

If you don't own a dedicated macro lens, then any lens with a relatively wide aperture will do the job - set your camera to macro mode so that it knows to focus on the subject closest to the camera. 

 

Other Tips

If you have a tripod with a centre column that can be turned horizontally or upside down, set it up, otherwise you might find a beanbag more useful.

If you have one, use a cable release or remote release as even the slightest touch on the camera can cause enough camera shake to blur your image. Alternatively, a two-second self timer gives you enough time to press the button and let go or use your Smart Device to trigger the shutter. Smart NX cameras can connect to your smartphone in just a few simple steps.

Dew drops falling down blades of grass look great but another cool and simple trick is to get an image inside the dew drop. To do this take another flower or grass blade and move it behind your subject until you can see it in your viewfinder. Do remember that everything you see is reversed in the dew drop though so if you want to centre the object that's to the left you need to move it more to the right.
