This weekend the weather was great again. So I took my camera and went off to the Leersumse Veld again. It was still very quiet en relaxed in the woods...... I love that. This time a wanted to do an other part of the Leersumse veld ( a big forest with heathland and lakes). You have a lot of different area's so also different trees which means also a lot of different mushrooms. You can go there many times without seeing the same spot.
Anyway if I am going out with my macro lens I just need a couple of meters and I can enjoy myself for a couple of hours. Can you image how a big forest will look like to me.
I ended up with using the beanbag for my knees because I am always sitting in the most impossible angles and ways you can image if I am photographing. And with mushrooms it is even more impossible because most of the time they are standing very low,......yes on the ground, and I never want to have a shot taken laying on my belly. This way I cannot move my self around it quickly enough and I dont' see enough angles. I always have to walk around or crawl around it. Or laying on my back with my head on the ground, trying to get lower than the mushroom. I already hear you say that's where the angle seeker is for. But this is also blocking me in my way. It may be a great thing if you want to take a shot right in front of the mushroom. If you want to use an other angle you have to take it of. So... yess my knees are very happy with the beanbag..... they don't look blue anymore.
