Shoot Me: Depth of Field
All three of the pictures here are, apart from rotating the image, straight out of the camera. No editing was done, just download from the camera, rotate the image if necessary, and upload to Flickr and the "Shoot Me" group.
The top picture I took with the camera a mere inches away. With camera forced into macro mode I was able to get a fairly shallow depth of field. The focus is all on the bloom in front, anything beyond becomes increasingly blurred. I am pretty happy with this photo and I'm very happy I got a sunny day to take pictures,
The morning the light that day was really making the yellow "pop." and I'm glad I got moving before the sun sifted and through them all into shadow.
The depth of field is much greater and to me the composition is a rather blah. I am a big fan of getting as close in as you can and this series of pictures confirm that to me.
