I found a spare 5 minutes today to spend with some tiny "weed"-daisies in my backyard. Some part of me just loves shallow depth of field, and flowers make such a beautiful and interesting study, with their multiple layers of pedally goodness.
I took my 50mm portrait lens off my camera, and turned it around backwards to get this ultra-macro, ultra f.0 shallow blurry look.
These past few months have been very busy with the kids' activities, and I have had next to no time for photographing. However, the schedule is changing for the warmer months, and I feel a glimmer of hope about having some more moments like this one today...for photography therapy.
A funny thought just occurred to me...as much as I love the feel of shallow dof, this is how my vision looked while trying on a pair of progressive-lensed eyeglasses. (I should be wearing bifocals...according to my last few eye exams) I would think I would enjoy viewing the magical world like this all the time, but not through glasses-only through the camera!
Ahhh...blurry flower therapy!
