17 Excellent Examples of Narrow Depth of Field When I first started to take photography seriously over 10 years ago, mastering depth of field was high on my priority list. Shooting with a narrow depth of field involves setting your camera lens to the widest possible setting and then focusing on one particular part of the frame. The stark contrast between in and out of focus portions of the frame concentrating around the subject and relative distance to other things in the frame creates a wonderful, visually appealing, texture enriched image.

Dwayne Burgess Photography Blog A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through. I was able to get in touch with Jason to ask him a few questions. Q: How did you get into photography? Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business? Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share? Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers? Q: Any quotes you live by?

Desillusion Parano : un magazine on the road - Ceegee, blog de tendances graphisme et inspiration : webdesign, graphisme, illustration, photographie, motion graphics, art, packaging, animation... I wrote an article few months ago about Desillusion, a very beautiful french magazine dedicated to surf cultures (written in both french and english). Each time I open a new issue it's a great surprise for me to read the articles and to watch the nice graphic design, the great photographs and the magazine in itself (lot of different papers, original shapes...).For the next issue the team had a great idea : to create the issue on the road, in a 1977 Chevrolet all over the West coast of France. Named "Desillusion Parano" in reference to "Las Vegas Parano", this next issue should be full of great encounters and nice pictures. Lucas, of the Desillusion team, sent me some of the first pictures of the trip, and you can discover it in the rest of this post, with a first video. You can follow the trip on the dedicated page of the website, on

Depth of Field Strategies for Street Portraits Over the years we’ve covered portraits, both shooting and post processing them, and we’ve provided you with an amazing guide to depth of field, but never covered specific strategies. As a primer to this article, take a look at 17 excellent examples of narrow depth of field to get an idea of how depth of field can be applied to street portraits. photo © 2011 Logan Campbell | more info (via: Wylio) Street photography is a niche all to its own, but shooting portraits of either strangers or friends / clients can present a whole other issue.
