You Capture - Depth of Field

So this week's fun assigment was DOF (or Depth of Field).  

I was trying out my new lens at my daughter's party and this was the result.

This one was a total accident/mistake but I like how it turned out. Birthday boy is out of focus but the bottle in the foreground is in focus.


I just really like this one and it makes me hungry for salsa.
I hope I got this right!

Now I would like to have some salsa for breakfast! Love the permit one. So cool. Isn't it sweet to watch how excited they get about something like that: )

These are really great. I think the thing I like about them most is not just the technical dof skill, but that each picture really captures a feeling. Nice work. :)

The salsa looks great. Congrats to your daughter on her permit. Buckle up and hang on tight!

Lovely shots! I love the highlights in the glasses on the bottles, and the feelings they convey. Nice work. :) Makes me want to go get a new camera now, haha!

Thanks everybody! I'm still a beginner, it's been a long time since high school photography class.


I think I'm ready to make more salsa now too!
