Think of it as artificial Depth of Field.
1. How could you use selective focus in an image for your depth of field photo challenge?
2. What aperture would you need to shoot a subject with so that the background appears to be blurry?
3. Apart from aperture what other way do we have in affecting depth of field?
4. How close do we want to shoot a subject for maximum depth of field?
Last years DOF photo challenge winners.
Use selective focus, use a macro lens, get close up. This week’s photo challenge is a great way to get introduced to depth of field, or to refine skills you learned in Photo One.
Check out this site for a reminder on just what is Depth of Field.
When looking for photographers of the day, in order to have a different, unique photographer each day can be quite challenging. Every once in a while though, I like a photographer’s work to the extent that its more difficult to select what won’t be included on this website than what will be.
Case in point Quentin Bacon. He fits in so well for the Depth of Field Photo Challenge, especially where food is concerned. His food photography is some of the best I have ever seen.
And the locations he shoots in? Why only the most exquisite jewels of Western Europe of course.
Enjoy these pictures, and say it with me “mmm… bacon.”
Unless you are a vegetarian of course. In that case, enjoy the images of travel, and children.
