My 52 Week challenge this week is "bokeh." Bokeh means blur. In photography it means changing the aperture on your camera blah . . . blah blah blah . . . blah (insert real big words here that are not important to this post) and blurring out portions of your photo in a pleasing way. Here is an example from two photos I took Memorial Day at Odd Fellow Cemetery. See the difference?
|Background in focus f9 Background blurred f3.5|
|This sweety was photographed at f6.3|
|Iris in my garden at f6.3|
|Tombstone from the late 1800's on Memorial Day in black and white at f3.5|
|Indian Blanket or Firewheel near the Odd Fellow Cemetery f8|
|Wonderful guardian angel at Odd Fellow Cemetery f7.1|
|Love the shade pattern and tree bark texture at f4.5|
|The focus is clearly on the amber beer at f4.5|
|You have seen this before, but it's one of my favorites at f4.5|
|Very confused butterflies here at f9|
So which one do I choose for Week 22?
