I have only just learnt how to do this with my camera;
To take a macro photo and have the background out of focus. I have been learning how to use my camera better and make it take the photos that I want thanks to the great series of ‘The Craft of Photography‘ posts and a little help from my friends 🙂 I have a long way to go, but have been practising the very skill that this week’s photo challenge Focus, suggests we try.
For this challenge, get out there and take a picture demonstrating the concept of focus. Depending on your skill level or type of camera, tinker with the manual settings, use the auto focus feature, or play around with an app. Some ideas:
Snap a photo of something or someone in focus, against a blurred background.
Share a panorama or landscape in sharp focus, in which you can see details far away.
Take multiple photos of the same scene or subject using different aperture settings and publishing the results.
This weekend we were down in Chichester Harbour and on Hayling Island. Wilson was as usual completely focussed on his stick! Here’s some of the photos I took;
Finally, a very rare photo of Wilson in focus! Normally he is just a furry blur!
