GBBD – Jan 2010
Since there’s been snow/ice covering everything I’ve been unable to get garden shots, however I opted for taking photos of Orchids instead. The weather has been miserable today (but snow and ice has melted, woo hoo) out came the remote and tripod for shots.
I have a feeling not everyone appreciates my bokeh packed photos, so I have had a play with depth of field (dof for those in-the-know), see for yourself what a difference it can make to the emotion of the image!
(this is just to prove that yes, I can take clear photos! I just choose not to)
The truth be told, I don’t like images in complete focus, I feel the eye gets confused and doesn’t know where to focus, where as the bokeh images lead you in so you know exactly where I am trying to tell you to look.
Plus I think it looks far more romantic and magical. I like magic.
