One Word Photo Challenge: Depth of Field

Depth of Field--5

Good morning from a cloudy and muggy day here in Hastings.

Last week my Social Snappers group had a magical time at this small garden.  The light was overcast and flat, so I was able to play around with the depth of field.  I love my new camera and it is so much fun trying out different effects and changing where my point of focus is.

Some was easy to work out.

Depth of Field--3

While others were a little more difficult.

Depth of Field--4

As you can see the background became a pleasing blur to highlight the flowers. I was excited to get home and see these photos.

My entry for Jennifer Nichole Wells prompt this week, which is aperture.


Cee’s Oddball Challenge: Windblown Tree

Windblown tree-

Good morning from another beautiful spring day here in Hastings.

The start of a new week means it is time for Cee’s  Oddball Photo Challenge. We all have those photos where we find some great subjects but they don’t fit into any category.

A few weeks ago we went over to Napier, and Westshore beach to take photos.  The weather was cold but that didn’t stop us.  It was also very windy as you can see with these trees.  Nature can be odd.
