Selective Focus | Columbine | New York

I have enjoyed photographing Columbine flowers a variety of times over the years.

The Columbine blossoms can be very interesting to photograph close up.

The blossom of a Columbine protrudes from the center in multiple directions.

This creates an opportunity to be really selective in ones focus.

Getting in close and focusing with a shallow depth of field on one specific part of the flower creates a small slice of focus.

Then everything else is our of focus. This creates a more abstract feel to the image.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 60mm f/2.8. Focal length 60mm. ISO 400. 1/2000 sec. f/4.

Thank you for joining me on the blog today.

Success! You're on the list.
