In Focus - Out of Focus - Depth of Field Understood
See how the puzzle is OUT OF FOCUS in the first image?
And how the puzzle is IN FOCUS in second image?
I think I've got this maneuver down. I either close down or open up my aperture and put my cameras in manual mode and VOILA! I can choose which images to use with this feature.
When I first decided to pick up a camera and begin a journey of discovering photography (last September), I spent one whole day trying to figure this maneuver out.
What a difference one year can make!
First, always know your equipment through and through. I read all my cameras user guides now. (YES! I DO!) ((Don't give me that look. It's not as bad as taxes or signing up for healthcare.))
This puzzle has been spread out, on my table now for one, full month. It was the cheapest version of a not-too-hard, but not-too-easy, but also aesthetically pleasing puzzle. It's a drawing of Paris and everything lit up (which is everything because it's the City of Lights) is yellowish against a twilight sky. Uffda. I might finish it one day.
The point is...It's puzzle season. Which means jazz in the background, sitting and staring at the table while I drink whiskey and eggnog until I get too tired of staring at the table any longer -and- quite possibly have finished my drink!
THAT'S RIGHT, THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS COMING UPON US.
AS FOR THE UNIVERSE TODAY: It is conspiring with me.
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
