Posts Tagged ‘depth of field’

I thought I might have some trouble with this week’s challenge, in fact I thought it might be impossible to achieve depth of field. I have an auto-focus camera that doesn’t have manual settings to play with. But I discovered I can still get some of the effects by taking the time to use the auto-focus feature correctly. I decided to be brave and show the BAD and the GOOD.

In the first photo, the background is slightly blurry. It was okay, but not exactly what I wanted.

The second one is not what I intended AT ALL!  I like the background colors, but I intended them to be blurry, with the piece of grass in the foreground in focus! I definitely focused on the wrong thing here.

Finally, I got the shot I wanted (though it isn’t exactly the bee’s best side). With my camera, I think depth of field is easier to achieve with macro shots.
