Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

bb-f1-1When I did a B&W photography course some years ago, our instructor provided a simple but effective mnemonic for remembering how to create depth of field:

  • F-stop 2 = 2 fence posts
  • F-stop 22 = 22 fence posts

I’ve never forgotten it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Have been a bit snowed under this week, so haven’t written any poetry, nor read any blogs – have a lot of catching up to do this weekend…

In the meantime, here’s my contribution to this week’s photo challenge: different views looking up at the Sydney Opera House that I took a while ago with that archaic thing known as a film SLR 🙂

What a view there must be from up there

I’ve used the (damaged) photo below before for my poem Sometimes which I posted back in May but which fits in quite nicely with the ‘Up’ theme, too

Happy weekends, Fellow Bloggers 🙂
