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.
On a recent city walk I focused my attention, and my camera, at windows. I love how you can see both what’s behind the window and what it is reflecting. They sort of look like double exposures. Plus, it’s the closest I’ll ever get to posting a selfie.
Isn’t the shine on that fungus amazing?
