Focus. This week’s challenge is inspired by Matthew George’s post on focus, in which he introduced us to the basics of depth of field and aperture. He explained what an image with a shallow depth of field looks like (or conversely, a photo with a greater depth of field), and how the aperture setting on your camera affects it.
I didn’t accomplish this with aperture, but the lighting blurred the background for me somewhat.
Another issue of focus occurs when one member of the pose does not really want to be there. Then you have a focus problem.
Now I am stretching myself to find something that meets the bill. This was taken this spring at the Woodlake Botanical Gardens. Flowers are especially good at posing like this.
So are leaves.
Cotton can do it, too.
Even Manny likes to pose best when I blur the background. Oops, what went wrong? Manny’s not happy about this! :)
Whew, that’s better!
