So, this week's You Capture was all about Depth of Field.
I have to confess that I didn't break out the manual setting on the camera to get these shots.
My camera and lenses just kind of like DOF, so I don't have to work too hard to get it.
In this shot, Grant, the bench and most of the foreground is in focus (mostly) while the pond and the grass behind the tree is blurred.
A little less DOF and Grant's still pretty focused, but I'm getting some nice bokeh or blurring in the background.
Shallower still and look at all the pretty bokeh.
I took this photo of a rose for a post earlier this week.
I really wanted a macro shot, but this was as close as my lens would let me get.
I cropped it for my macro shot, but I like it this way as well.
Can you guess what this is? I kind of love this shot.
Or cute, fuzzy goslings.
(Will I never be able to say goslings without thinking of the Gosselin family?)
Now I'm going to cheat a bit and post some pictures that I didn't take this week,
but I thought that they were perfect for the whole DOF thing.
Is this next shot a good picture or not?
I really just can't decide.
There's something about it that makes me love it, but the only focused spot is a small strip of mud and gravel.
I don't know.
Then there is this shot that I overlooked when I first took it, but I'm loving it now.
So much so, that I've posted it twice this week and turned it into my header.
If I could paint, I'd paint it.
