Project 52 – Week 6: Fantasy

Project 52 – Week 6: Fantasy

It’s fantasy week here at the blog circle!

I’ve had to cheat this time as I had taken the photos but couldn’t do anything with them, and I’m trying to keep from looking at the computer too long! However, I reworked an image I made last year, and although may not be quite to the theme, I think it’s very cute!

Here’s Oliver, my first ever ferret. I now have 6, but in 2012 I got the opportunity to take this chap home and it’s been a blast ever since. He’s getting on now so I want to include him at least once!


It’s also been a cold week here so felt like a warm image might help cheer things up a bit. The other photo’s I had taken had a blue theme as they were going to feature this stunning boy!



I’m sure the rest of the blog circle have come up with some very interesting images, start off with Darlene with Pant the Town Pet Photography serving MA and NH


Project 52 – Week 5: Depth of Field

Project 52 – Week 5: Depth of Field

Welcome back to the weekly blog circle!

It’s a quick one from me this week as I can’t see properly – apologies as the photos haven’t even been edited nicely.

I’ll let the images do the talking, but we’re concentrating on depth of field this week, which simply put is how much of your image is in focus. The main way to adjust your DoF is by changing your aperture. In these next photos I placed the cats somewhere cluttered that I could use to explain. Using a large aperture firstly, then a smaller one you can see how the background becomes less and more distracting. I stayed in the same spot for both.

Nice blurred background

I like shallow DoF mostly but that can have its problems as sometimes you can’t get all the subject in focus and it’s much easier to miss!

You can also use DoF for telling a story, or bringing the viewers attention to something.
