An example of DEPTH OF FIELD

Is it Monday yet? Here’s another Macro. The central focus of this photo is the grasshopper in a European Fan Palm tree. The outward edges on the fan have a blur while moving closer towards the grasshopper the edges become sharper drawing the eye directly to the grasshopper. This is known as a shallow or narrow DEPTH OF FIELD (DOF).

    WOW… he sure looks like a mean old bug! Great DOF and perspective. I am weak in the macro shots and need some help!

    I’m not normally one to like creepy-crawly bug shots, but this one is outstanding! The focus, the colour and everything comes together to make it a wonderful image.
