Certainly one way to interpret this week’s challenge is to demonstrate the concept of depth-of-field. When shooting with a macro lens – as in this shot – the camera captures a narrow plane in which to focus. This shot was taken on our recent trip to Curacao. These creatures, called Christmas Tree Worms, can be found on coral reefs throughout the world. They sprout out of calcified tubes on the reef and even a slight hand wave towards them will cause them to retract into their tubes. So focusing up close can be tricky!
