Our second assignment was depth of field…both deep and shallow. I tried a few times while on vacation in Hawaii and got a few shots.
This one has a pretty shallow depth of field. I was trying to focus on the flower, but the stepping on the banks of the creek was pretty precarious so I ended up having to focus as close to the flower as I could get without falling into the water. I was surprised to see the tiniest bit of earth in focus in front of the flower.
This was another attempt. Didn’t get what I wanted as far as DOF, but I liked the bokeh in the background. I can never seem to get good bokeh when I try, only accidentally.
