About This Photo:
This photo is of a rice field in southern Philippines. The camera and lens used was a Canon EOS 70D and a Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Contemporary lens. The image was taken using a single exposure at ISO250, f/7.1, 1/400sec at 70mm. ISO250 was used so I could use a fast shutter speed of 1/400sec. I felt that was important for two reasons. One I wanted to use aperture of f/7.1 for the depth of field and that its also a sweet spot for sharpness with this lens at that focal length. Plus the wind was blowing quiet a bit that day and I did not want any leaves or tree tops to get blurred.
