Lilly Pad Trail – Codrington College, Barbados


This is such a beautiful spot.

I could spend a whole day here just shooting the pond alone.

With most of my landscapes I shoot in manual focus.

The goal is to have everything from my foreground to the background in focus.

To get this I shut down my aperture to somewhere around f/16 – f/11 and focused on something about a 3rd of the way into the shot (hyper focal distance).

I also use the S shaped leading line of the lilies to guide the viewer into the image and help create depth.


Shut down your aperture and use the hyper focal distance to keep things in the fore and background sharp.
