If you have been following my blog you know that I have been reading Exposure Photo Workshop by Jeff Wignall. I had read chapter 4 almost 2 months ago and I understood the concept but had a hard time executing it. The concepts covered in chapter 4 are Lens Apertures and Depth of Field. The assignment was to take a shallow depth of field photo. I tried to do this many times over the last 2 months with no success. I need to emphasize that this is not do to the author's writing this is totally me. As a matter of fact the author even covered the possibility that if you don't have a SLR this may not be an assignment you can do well. Well I have an advanced zoom camera and of course, I thought I would be able to do it. I was wrong. So today I finally decided to take a photo in portrait mode which is supposed to create a blurred background with my camera and as you can see below it really didn't but just post in anyways.
