Focus 52 and selective focusing, and Creative Exchange


Earlier this week I read a post from Christy at 
http://way-outnumbered.blogspot.com/ about selective focusing. It has really opened up possibilities. Naturally I got out my manual to figure out how to set my focusing mode to spot focusing. But as usual I had to call my friend, Betty John, to help me out. http://artisticexpressionsphotographync.blogspot.com/
She led me to Ken Rockwell and patiently led me through the steps.

When you focus on one area, the background and foreground go all silky. I love that!


Look at all that luscious bokeh!



Isn't this cool!

More silkiness....don't you love silky?

Maybe you will want to try this. But first, head on over to:

Have a wonderful week, my sweet friends!

Absolutely wonderful, especially the one with that vivid purple in it. You have inspired me to get out and try this when my lilies start blooming.

You did these so beautifully Charlotte!
Selective focus is really quite amazing.

Great job, Charlotte! I love selective focusing. The bokeh is out of this world when you open your aperture wide.
