Project 12 June 2013 ~Shallow Depth of Field~

The month of June asked that we use the photographic technique known as shallow depth of field. I tend to really like this particular technique although it has been a work in progress for me to understand it πŸ™‚ I thought this month I would give you a “shallow” peek into how we’ve been spending our summer days….

at the beach…..

…Oldest is trying different make up styles and filming tutorials for her cousins for when they need it ;)…

…spending time at SNAKES IN THE LIBRARY! …can you see the camera shake from my shuddering? That was not even close to the biggest snakes he brought!!!!….

…painting toenail designs and floating in the pool relaxing πŸ™‚

…and having some water wars!!

All in all a very nice start to a summer that is speeding by!

You may have noticed the conflicting processing styles on these shots {or not ;)}. I am really trying to figure out what I like best and am torn between 2 styles..I tend to lean towards rich color processing and am trying to develop my skills with this, however I often love soft hazy, dreamy looks depending on the picture and my mood, what are your thoughts?

Thanks for stopping by and seeing my shallow depth of field this month. Please follow the circle around to see how the other amazing CM photographers have implemented this technique; start with checking out how Claire has used shallow depth of field!!

  1. Fun images! My kids loved when the reptile (snake) man visits the library!! …….me not so much..LOL! I love the fishtail braids in the girls hair!!

  2. Cary, I’m always impressed with how much you capture of your children’s lives… and the girls look suddenly much older! I especially love the toenail shot in the pool… creative, relaxing, and pretty. I like the processing on it a lot too. ❀
