depth in the trees

shallow DOF

I found this section of trees in a nearby park. The consistency of them appealed to me. I tried to use a shallow depth of field to isolate a single trunk. This created a focal point while the shallow DOF threw out everything else out of focus.

I think this would be an interesting location to do some portrait work. The open show of trees would make for an interesting background and add depth to the image.

Here’s another one from the same outing, of my daughter Ella on her bike. Love the expression.
