I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Day 77 (May 27) The Garden at f/1.8

I always enjoy really narrow depth of field in other people photos, and I think to myself, "Gosh, it sure would be nice to have that expensive lens to take such beautiful images."

Well, duh! Jessica.

I already have a lens with very narrow depth of field, and because I'm a bit slow, I hardly ever use it. And when I do, I stop down! Why???

So, today, I shot wide open in the garden, during some light rain (by the way, not recommended, but I was pretty sure the camera could handle it). Wide open the lens isn't super sharp, plus the leaves were blowing in the breeze, but I still got some decent results.
