A Personal Project (Three Photographs)

You often hear about professional photographers taking time to do personal projects, something that is a little distance away from their normal work, rules and even comfort zone (that cheery friendly place we amateurs can inhabit). I was in a garden and had been explaining shallow depth of field with macro lenses. When that was over I took advantage of an opportunity to shoot some birds and insects. But what I had said during my explanation wasn’t far from my mind and I went back to take these shots again. As a matter of practicality, narrow depth of field means you have to ensure that enough of your subject is in focus to be coherent or else choose a smaller aperture, larger Fstop. In this case the narrow depth of field seemed to create a situation where the subject could speak for itself and still leave something to the imagination.
