Wall painting – Luke baker

By | Depth of field, Macro | No Comments

This is a picture of my good friend Luke Bakers Wall Art… He drew this awesome illustrative piece of work on his home wall..

it made a nice picture as i took it at an angle the right hand side of it is quite vague but you can see that it is real on the left…the DOF here helps that..

Luke i have forgotten your blog URL so comment on this and ill add it in… cheers Luke…

Kenyan Flower Series # 3

By | Depth of field, flowers, Macro, Nature | No Comments

This is a really nice shot and i almost already think this will be shot of the series..

Again the depth of field here is what makes this one special and just so soft and nice to look at..

No major post production was needed..

I quite like how i have framed it as it sits at the bottom of the frame propping up the lush green garden behind.

Thoughts??

Kenyan Flower Series #2

By | Depth of field, Macro | No Comments

This is a nice little tightly cropped image of… sadly i forget the name… but rather common flower in Kenya…

Again there is allot of depth of field in this and it works rather nicely i feel… it accentuates that nice red core of the flower…

Again just fairly simple levels tweaks here..

Would a more clearer shot with less depth of field have been better?

Old Kenyan Man

I took this image with a 70- 300 manual focus lens that i does not auto focus well with my Canon 20D so when i do get a nice image like this its rather rewarding..

I like the soft depth of field and the contrast that i have boosted it too… The mans face has so much detail and the way he is posed just shows wiseness…

The fact that his eyes were closed also was interesting and went well with the old feeling.. not that all old people sleep just though it was nice…
