From The Daily Post at WordPress — Focus. This week’s challenge is inspired by Matthew George’s post on focus, in which he introduced us to the basics of depth of field and aperture. He explained what an image with a shallow depth of field looks like (or conversely, a photo with a greater depth of field), and how the aperture setting on your camera affects it.
Well, since I used my iPhone 5, there was no adjusting the “focus”, the lens, or anything else for that matter! I’m basically a point and shoot kind of person — especially since I don’t have a fancy camera anymore! So, here’s my take on this week’s Photo Challenge of FOCUS.
It seems that most of my photos are of my animals. Hmm, now why is that I wonder? Guess it’s just because they’re here because they’re certainly not very cooperative in front of the camera. Seems every time I point a camera at them when they’re posed so adorably, they’ll see me and suddenly have to be in my lap or run away. Oh, well.
This first photo is Nicky. I brought him in when he was about ten months old and skinny as a rail. He’s six years old now, thriving and ornery! I’m not sure what he was focused on in this picture but it allowed me to get up close and personal! This photo was taken with my iPhone 5 and is unretouched.
Here’s another one of my little kitties. Her name is Inky. She’s probably around 4 years old and just about as sweet as they get. She was sitting on my lap ignoring me while I was trying to see if I could get any interesting pictures of her cat eyes!
And last, but not least, is one of my photos when I’m focused! Guess which one hit first. Then I really focused!
