This week’s challenge asks us to share a photo that emphasizes the use of focus and depth of field. It brought to mind a shot I took last winter on the prairie looking back towards the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I chose an aperture that allowed me to focus on the foothills, while blurring the tall winter grasses in foreground. This shot is somewhat unusual in that most photographers choose to blur the background instead.
I’m also posting this shot to meet Bastet’s Pixelventures challenge for the week – “Through.” We’re asked to shoot through “a wire mesh fence, sunglasses, screendoor anything…just shoot through something,” and this shot was taken through the grasses. See what I did there? Two challenges, one shot!
