This photo was taken at the Gifted Hand show a couple years back in Ellsworth, Maine. I bought some of the Sister’s Soaps but it was the amazing color that caught my eye!
Sometimes it’s as much about the depth of field, lighting and color, for me, as it is the entire composition or subject. I like this shallow depth of field combined with the lighting which allowed me to achieve some pretty interesting bokeh! This was from a craft fair in Ellsworth, Maine last year and this was the Lucky Dog Gallery display.
This is East Quoddy Light
This is the Rosa Rugosa bush (flowers not present in this photo) and the red bud you see are rose hips. Bokeh is a photographic term for the desired quality of the blurred section of a photograph (the highlighted out of focus circles)
Here are four completely different examples of various lighting and depth of field that I just love to play with!
I LOVE being in Portland right now but I do so miss waking up and grabbing my camera to capture the amazing sunrises in Southwest Harbor! These are from my archives…
This was taken at a small B&B/Farm in Maine. The lighting in the barn was just perfect to capture this little one! Only a face a mother could love?
I just like the detail in this ceiling fixture – the base is actually sterling silver!
It WAS this orange! Spectacular!
this shot takes me back to my college days when I used to develop and print my own photography!
