A pretty flower

Just because it’s Wednesday …  and you might need a little oomph to make it through to the weekend … here is a pretty picture of a flower. I snapped it up in Durham, and I’m quite happy because the flower is in focus, but the background is not!

But wait!  There’s more!  For a limited time only, I’ll show you the exact same picture, but this time with the background in focus, and the flower all blurry!

If you couldn’t tell, I’ve been having fun playing with my new camera!  We decided to get a second one because I was hogging it all the time, and Alex wanted to be able to take one with him on his trips. He claims he’s going to use it for pictures to post on the blog, but since you all know that he hardly ever posts anyway… well,  we’ll just have to wait and see!

    What kind of camera did you get this time?

    • We got the Canon Powershot A3000 with image stabilizer. I tend to have a hard time holding the camera still, so lots of my pictures come out fuzzy. I’m hoping that this will help with that! It’s got a pretty nice zoom too!

  2. Thanks for showing this technique. I’ve been talking about DOF on my blog with great response. It seems many are unsure how this is accomplished. Great shot.
