The Decoration   Depth of Field  Isolating a Sub.

Uploaded: December 17, 2013


ISO 200, 400mm, F/13, 1/10th sec., Isolating a subject, I focused on the Hummingbird attempting to get his eye in focus, using a long telephoto, and the distance from camera to bird was about 12 feet. I used an app for calculation, tried different apertures and liked this one which obscured the magnolia tree the bird was in...except for the branch he lighted upon

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
