VW3 – Shallow DOF

Welcome to Visual Wilderness Episode #3! In this episode, we talk about our March assignment for Visual Wilderness – Shallow Depth of Field. We discuss some of the reasons we might choose to use a wide aperture, and we’ll talk about what we were trying to accomplish with some of our own shallow DOF photos.

About Author Jay Patel

I could startoff like this – “Seeds of Jay Patel’s appreciation for beautiful places were planted early in his childhood….” but it would get boring really fast. I will just sum it up and say that I am a Landscape and Wilderness Photographer who loves to capture dramatic light. My photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and advertising materials throughout the world.

Patience is a virtue...unless you are chasing your dreams

    Varina- on your blended shot of the flower with the yellow stamen and red petals- am I correct in thinking that for the leaves closer to the camera in the bottom foreground you used the shot that focused on the yellow stamen?

    • Yes – that’s correct, Pamela. 🙂

      If anyone is wondering what Pamela is asking about – you can hear me talking about that particular photo at about 17:35. 😉
