This is my 100th post !! 😀
Another post for Lucile’s Rehab Clinic over at bridging lacunas. If you want to join a supportive community of photography enthusiasts who like to share their images and a little technique, please come on over!
This is a weed in my garden, we’ve sprayed it but it’s pretty resilient, so I decided to play with my depth of field a little, using a wide aperture (low aperture number e.g. f/1.8 – f/4) to blur out the background. It’s important to keep the camera lens parallel to the subject, rather than tilted to an angle – this makes sure that more parts of the subject are at the same distance from the lens and therefore in focus.
There are some weeds that I find gorgeous. Like Lantana for example. I love Lantana, in Adelaide they grow it in garden beds. At home, on the cane farm, it was a pest because it grows quickly and chokes out the sugar cane. Do you have a garden pest that you secretly find attractive?? 😉
