So my goal for this year is to improve in my photography. I am doing that in many different ways - reading books, articles and being a part of a couple forums. I would love to take a couple of classes but I don't see that happening this year. Two things that I will be doing is a themed photo every week for the year and I am doing a monthly photo theme with some ladies from Clickin Mom's. So I'm hoping to get out of my shell and see more improvement with my photography this year.
This weeks theme was all about a Shallow Depth of Field which is all about taking pictures with a very narrow focus. I tried taking pictures of the seashells that we painted yesterday at Little N's art show but unfortunately as I was taking the pictures a fuse was blown in the classroom and all my pictures turned out horribly blurry! :-( So today as I was picking up Little N from school there are these beautiful trees by the parking lot and my goal was to get a blurry (bokeh) background and a blury (bokeh) foreground. I did succeed but just not as perfectly as I thought it would be. It's a growing and learning experience.
