We’ve received some great submissions for the painting with your camera challenge. Its not too late to participate yet. All you have to do is email me your image(s) at email@example.com by the end of Wednesday.
The photo above was created using the out of of focus on purpose technique. It’s not hard, but its not simple either. You have to try different focal lengths, to make sure you have enough detail, and maybe even try different apertures, depending on the bokeh. I used f8 for this particular shot.
