Photographer of the day: 5/1: Douglas Ethridge

I’ve featured Douglas Ethridge before, unaware of the sheer variety present in his portfolio. Seattle-based Ethridge knows his way around depth of field to a masterful degree. But he is equally triumphant in his rendering of the ocean as the whirling, swirling beast that it is.

Many thanks to Lenscratch for the inspiration.

    He usues depth of field by basically focusing only the part of the photo he wants his viewers to see. It seems sort of like a macro photo and maybe it is, but he does a great way of shooting it.

    He uses shutter speed and depth of field by making them blurred and just by the lighting. My favorite photo would be the one of the sand castle with people playing in the background, because it’s like a happy ending picture, and i love how the bridge just adds to the photo.

    The way that the photographer uses depth of field in some of the picture is that he really narrows in on the subject that is meant to be the main focal point (like the picture of the rock). He also uses shutter speed to capture the lapping of the waves of the ocean.

    My favorite picture would have to be the very last one because I like how the rock is the main focal point and everything else in the background is sort of like translucent or like see through.

    My favorite picture is the first one. It’s one of the most vibrant pictures I have ever seen. It excites my eyes, I am not sure what it is, but it looks good.
    My favorite picture from this whole week was the one from yesterday, the Auditorium. The color contrast, and angle made it an amazing picture.

    When he uses depth of field the subject in front is very clear, while the background is blurred, it gives it a dramatic effect almost like it’s a dream, or not real.
