Image of the Week

They say April showers bring May flowers. Well, we've certainly had several showers this April, so the flowers are coming along nicely. But we don't always have to wait for May when we can make a trip to the local home and garden center, like I did for these African Daisies. When I photographed these flowers I wanted only the flower in the center to be in focus with the rest of them blurred or out of focus. To do this I selected a larger aperture (f/4) for a narrow depth of field, moved in close and focused the lens on the one flower I wanted to be in focus. To add some additional color to the image I made sure to include some green grass in the background. The result is a springtime floral image.
