Landscapes with a "Wide Open aperture"
Challenge has finished
Generally landscape photography is shot with an aperture between f7.1 and f11. The reason why is that is where most lenses are at their sharpest, and your depth of field (parts in focus) normally covers the entire image..However, sometimes rules are merely guidelines. With that in mind, the challenge this week is to shoot at the wider apertures. Anything up to f5.6 will be accepted. With a wide open aperture you will notice the background will blur (that is called bokeh)...Keep the subject as sharp as possible though...Things that work good for this sort of challenge are things with detail...Wildflowers, foliage etc works well...Get your creativity hats on and get shooting..
