Day 48 – The Whole Rose
I thought I would photograph the whole, BIG rose, the same rose as yesterday.
I started out moving back to get the whole rose in the frame, I was just lazy to put my 50mm lens on, so I was sitting against the opposite wall, almost, to get the rose in the frame.
There’s just so much you can photograph when you are photographing the whole subject, so I went in for a closer look, and that’s when I started playing around with the Depth of Field.
I focused on a petal and using a very shallow depth of field (DOF) allowing only a small part of the petal to be in focus it created these smooth, ocean of petals. I quite like the effect I got from this, something bit different than everything in focus. And thanks for this rose with so many petals there were quite a lot of photos I could take… and did take.
Only realized now that it’s quite a lot of extras!!!
