Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus | The Daily Post


Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus | The Daily Post.

This is one of those serendipitous challenges – I’d just dumped the ashcan onto our mini land fill around the new water tank when I noticed the drops of water suspended off the branches of this apple tree (at least I think it’s an apple tree – it didn’t give me any clues last summer)…

My camera is a small but handy Fuji which fits in a pocket but on examination (short of reading the instructions) I couldn’t see any way to manually adjust the f-stop and exposure settings beyond the preset options. I did want a shallow depth of focus and not deep shot where the background would distract from the rain drops…I got this using the macro setting and it look’s OK but not as good as a true manual…

Then I walked back inside – you were waiting for the serendipitous bit, yeah? – and there was this challenge for Focus – just too me a while to get it together, that’s all…
