I’m usually a very casual photographer. I tend to set only the basic camera settings at the beginning of a shoot and focus more on color, texture, composition, etc. while snapping photos. However, sometimes only a change in camera settings will give me the result I want.
I don’t like how the background flowers competed for attention with the main flower in this photo.
So I lowered the aperture setting to f/5.0, blurring the background. The main flower is now the center of attention.
