8th Annual WML Academic Symposium

Presenter: Amber Merklinger
Title: The Hum of Bees
Developed under the guidance of Prof. Brian Bowman

For my device I used a NIKON D3200. I used a 1/320 second shutter speed, f/6.3, 55mm zoom, and an ISO of 200. I loved this shot because it gave the bumble bee an ethereal glow. The sunlight was hitting it in just the right way to make the focal point of the picture stand out even more. Bees are beautiful creatures that do a lot of good for our world. Without them, we would lose so many precious plants. This image, to me, represents life and beauty as one.
