Focus (Two Photographs)

FocusTo view more of my photography please click on

Focus can mean many things in photography, and not just about what is in focus but also the focus of the photograph. If we take a scene with a lot of things going on, the context has to help us focus on the subject. If there is no focus, the impact of the whole had better be very dramatic. Example one: someone says there is a penguin in the photo but you have to squint to see it. Example two: someone says they followed the rule of thirds and the subject is that bird to the right. I for one do not want to leave people wondering what my photograph is about. In one of the photos in this post there is a clear subject. In the other photo the whole picture either has meaning and impact or it falls short. In other words you don’t necessarily want to count on your audience to guess your subject.

  1. The first one has a subject, a leaf, but I also like the second with the overall pattern.
