{Monthly Challenge} shallow depth of field

This month’s photography challenge is “Shallow Depth of Field” — one of my favorite techniques and styles of shooting. I love how a shallow depth of field can separate your subject from the background or otherwise bring focus to an important detail. I tackled this challenge by focusing on eyes and mud with a wide open aperture, getting up close (real close) to flowers with my macro lens, and even found a relevant word in a crossword puzzle.

Make sure to continue on through the blog circle, starting with the talented Catherine McAteer. Youโ€™re sure to be inspired by her playful images!
