For our weekly photography challenge, we were to photograph something using a shallow depth of field. I found this explanation online and couldn’t think of a better way to describe it, so I am quoting here:
‘Depth of Field or DOF for short is a description of how much of your photograph is in focus. A shallow depth of field simply means that one specific area of your photo is tack sharp while other elements remain blurred.’
I decided to take my boys out for a mini photoshoot…shooting wide open. I did have all three of the boys with me, but the youngest was a bit distracted by the playground that was close to the field we were shooting at. Hence, I photographed two out of the three. My oldest will be turning 9 in just a few weeks and when I looked at these images, I couldn’t help but notice how much he is growing up. Our last year of single digits!
