As far as I know, I am DW's only professional photographer, (Sartodinapoli, a close second by using his ancient 4MP camera) ITT I will shamelessly shill my photography & fellow peasants members can share opinions.
I welcome all others who dabble in photography to share photos of stuff they are proud of.




Brother's Band's drummer proposed to his fiancee and I took some engagement photos.

I think that photo would have more impact if it was shot with a wider angle? What do you think?

Maybe. But I like the way the couple are framed on the edge with the height of the tree for scale. I my head it creates a curve down the path and into the trees. If that makes sense

If you got yourself a tripod and a neutral density filter that fits your lens and did long exposures, you'd make those landscapes look even cooler.

Not bothered to get around converting my old internal harddrive into an external for my laptop, so just pulling from Facebook some pictures I like for whatever reason.

See the specks of dust above the treeline in your photo? that is dust on your sensor.
You can pay someone at a camera store to do it, or consider buying products from the brand Visible Dust.

Does anyone have interesting family photos?
I just started looking at ones taken when my grandparents were young and still living in Holland.

How do you create the distinction where the foreground is razor sharp but the background is slightly blurred?
Arnie can probably explain better than can I, but essentially it has to do with the focal point and "depth of field".

A desired effect in photography is to, as you say, have an object in the foreground in focus but the background to be blurred. In photography terms, the effect is referred to as "bokeh" which is, curiously, originally from Japanese. In Japanese, "boke" means to be mentally blurry - it's also used to refer to senility or when you're absent-minded.

In essence, you want a shallow point-of-focus - something in the near foreground - so that the background, some distance away, is out of focus.

Journeyman explained that well.

As for my process, I was very close to that plant, my camera was set to the most shallow aperture setting available which was f/4, I got my camera to focus on the spots on the plant and I took a few frames.
