For my assignments, I used two cameras (a) a Canon EOS 80D and (b) a Canon EOS 2000D. They are both high-quality Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras. For my day-to-day photography, I use the camera on my iPhone 12 mini - which is convenient, high quality, but not a single-lens reflex camera. You can exercise much greater control over a DSLR camera, such as a Canon, because it has a full manual (M) setting. You only have limited control over the iPhone camera.

This photograph is of one of my leaf sketches made into b/w from Camera Raw. Grey-scale mode was used.

This photograph was taken with a Canon EOS 2000D, mounted on a tripod with 2 second shutter release, as it was difficult to focus. A light was placed behind the leaf. A 105 macro setting was used. The tripod minimised 'camera shake'.

Both of these photographs show the still life extending away from the camera lens. In the leftmost photo, a tiny aperture was used giving a large 'depth of field' - meaning that both 'near' and 'far' are in focus, whereas in the rightmost photo, the foreground is sharp and the background is blur.
Both of these photographs were taken with a 'pendulum' hand swinging in front of the camera lens. The photograph on the left demonstrates 'stopping motion', whereas the photograph on the right shows extreme 'motion blur' (ghosting).

Both of these photographs were taken on Manual (M) setting.
The poppy seed heads (on a mirror to reflect a muted image) were photographed from a tripod with a macro setting.

The Raspberry Pi (electronics) was also photographed on a mirror using a tripod. It was photographed in colour and made into b/w.
Favourite Photographs
(from my garden)
I love the clarity of the teasel head, which is the subject of the image and which is in contrast to the blurred (and out-of-focus) foliage both in the foreground and in the background. The seeds of the teasel head (from my own garden) are great for attracting birds. This photograph beautifully captures the texture of the head.

The contrasting colours and vibrancy jump out of this photograph - which captures the red of the peeling onion skin, the sprouting green of the stem and the luminosity of the reflected sunlight. The blurred background of brown folded fabric is sympathetic to the layers of the onion skin while offering a complete contrast of colour.
All from my garden (incl. the mind-map)
"Honesty Seed Heads"
...... delicate, translucent and beautiful.
The mysterious form and texture of these beautiful lychens could be from anywhere in nature.
Is it from the sea or from the garden?
..... a poppy seed head (close up), but not obviously so.
Creativity springs from the mind
........ or at least the 'mind-map'.
