Our assignment for Day 4 is: “Vision and Blur”.
I can get a fair amount of blur in my photos naturally, as I’m not always in focus!
Today our assignment was to have a photo with a wide open aperture, and a nice blur in the background. My regular lens doesn’t do that as well as my macro, of course.
The photo I took today was with my regular lens. I softened the light from the window in the background with a light diffusing curtain.
The locket belonged to my grandmother who was born in the late 1800′s. I thought the quote was perfect for a locket.
In PhotoShop Elements I added an overall texture to the photo at 51% opacity. I also used a brush to add a bit of extra color around the edges and cut the shine of the chippy paint on the table top.
Info: Nikon D300, lens: Nikon 18-135, ISO:500, 1/60, f/5.6
