Thursday’s Special: In the Background

In the Background is today’s theme @ Paula’s Thursday’s Special. I love macro and have some really good shots I would love to post but I cannot seem to find them. So in their place are these two I took this past October. The thing I am discovering about macro is the background needs to have a decent bokeh or consist of a single color (solid blue sky for example). The subject of your macro needs to be in the depth of field and the correct background makes it “pop”. I have a nice shot in B&W of a bonfire I took that has no reflections on the background and the solid black background helps draw your eye to the flames…..but that is for another post.

I am a 59 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.

    1. Thanks for your gracious words Patricia!

      The truth is the camera is just a box and if I simply show up sometimes I can capture some wonderful things. This are not of my making but they are wonderful things none the less.~ John

      1. I do not deny I have been blessed with the ability to take a good photo but I never judge a photo by my standards. If the subject sings to you, the quality doesn’t matter because amazing is in the eye of the beholder….or something along those lines 🙂
