I always think this technique sounds a lot easier than it is, at least to do well, which you certainly have here, Anne. Great choice for the flowers you used too, with wonderful splashes of color to frame the one you've focused on.

Thank you Joannie and Mitch! Yes, Mitch, I agree it does sound easier than it is. It really takes some practice, but it is fun to do and certainly makes the flower images a little less boring.

That was a new term for me. Can you explain "shoot through" a little more (blurring the foreground and surrounds to find that one hidden treasure?) Seeing the results of this effort makes me want to try it. Great effect for the bright coloring.

Hi Kathy,

Yes, that's it. It works well with a telephoto lens. You get up really close to one flower, something too close for you to able to focus on it, and focus on another flower that is behind it. That leaves just a blur of colour in front of the object that is in focus. It's fun! Thanks for taking the time comment.

Hi Anne,
Simply stunning! The shoot thru technique worked beautifully here. I know that this particular technique is hard to get just right, but you nailed it here.
