Welcome back and thanks for visiting I know that I’ve been pretty dry on my good old fashioned rants of late but away from the fact that my two year old doesn’t want to eat his dinner until he’s been put to bed, screamed his lungs out till he’s gotten up and only then eaten his dinner (it’s only been a couple of days but it wears thin pretty quick) life in the Bunny Chow household has been sailing pretty smoothly.

Nanny Bunny Chow arrives this weekend anyway so she can assume the role of evil parent who insists that all meals don’t consist of yoghurt and cheese on toast.

Anyway back to photography, this weeks suggested theme from Google+ was depth of field. The ideal way of achieving depth of field is to open up your camera’s aperture to the lowest f-stop possible and you’ll get lovely creamy blurred backgrounds or bokeh but to get those really low f-stops you need really expensive posh equipment or at least equipment I don’t own with both of my camera’s only opening up to f2.8 I was forced to go with Macro and see how I got on. I also forced myself to shoot in colour for a change and am actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.

You can view the full album this shot came from here.

 

Depth of Field

 Next weeks theme is Spring/Autumn so I need to think about whether I go with the cliché and find some Daffodil’s (they weren’t in flower last night when I looked anyway) or go on the hunt for something more original.

As always I appreciate any and all feedback and invite you to share my photography with those around you.

Mr Bunny Chow

another week seems to have flown on by and once again I’m sharing with you a photo from my project 52.

This weeks suggested theme was “in the workplace” and not wanting to take any clichéd shots of my desk and work station I tried to think outside of the box, as many of you know I work for a large car dealer group so could easily of taken shots of the showroom or the mechanics and their tools in the back but I didn’t really want to have to go through the explanations.

Instead the shot I have chosen was taken again using my little Canon IXUS 107 in the dumping ground above our parts department. I really like the mixture of textures and tones achieved.

What do you guys think?

In The Work Place

Next Week the suggested theme is depth of field so I’m going to have to put my thinking cap on.
