Day 294 of 365
I was heating up some water to make some tea for my wife and thought I'd try to photography steam coming out from the teapot....turned out to be a bit harder than I thought. Will have to read up on the best way to do it. I'm guessing I may have had better luck with my 50mm f/1.8 wide open but wanted more of a closeup so went with the macro lens instead but had to use f/5. Too much light caused the stainless steel to shine too much so tried to isolate light onto the steam itself using mirrors but still not enough. To the naked eye there was all kinds of steam...not so much to the camera.
