Where do you think we are?

When something stubborn gets in the way of you and your camera, as with this greenery, there are a few options. Move it; move yourself; incorporate it.

With this large object, I took a liking to it and decided to play for a while. With a shallow depth of field and focus on the object rather than the structure behind, I was able to incorporate it as a key part of the image.

Focus point, distance and aperture are key tools in this arty come abstract come adventurous image making. It demonstrates how much control we have as a photographer: our own eyes wouldn’t see the scene in this way, as our eyes and brain flit around assessing the whole setting,  re-focusing as necessary. With our camera we are able to design the image to how the viewer what we want them to see.

Coming back out to a wider angle shot, I’ll leave you to think about what and where this is.

I’ll answer that question and show you some more “normal” views over the weekend.
