Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

David Williams Photography Daily Post Photo Challenge: Focus

f/1.6 | 1/200 | iso 100 | Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM

The challenge this week over at The Daily Post is focus: “For this challenge, get out there and take a picture demonstrating the concept of focus. Depending on your skill level or type of camera, tinker with the manual settings, use the auto focus feature, or play around with an app.”

Here’s my entry, a fresh fruit and vegetable vendor at Pike Place Market with a very shallow depth of field (f/1.6) which allowed me to isolate the sign and the “fresh crisp red & green leaf lettuce.”

I had a little spare time this morning so decided to include a few other focus entries…in no order or anything…

  2. I like that you chose the lettuce and all it’s textures to focus on instead of the more brightly colored fruits and veggies. Different in a very good way!

  5. I shouldn’t have looked at your beautiful shot before breakfast! Now I’m hungry and the market isn’t until Saturday. But I do have some lovely peaches from last Saturday and some raspberries, so I’m off to indulge.


  6. Fantastic focus David, some great texture with the lettuce as well. With so much going on in a market I find it difficult to know where to look and what to focus on. Nice work 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog, much appreciated!

    • Hello Ben, thanks for the wonderful comment…the market sure has a ton going on, I typically shoot with a very shallow depth of field when there to isolate my subject(s). 😀 Hope to see you around again!

  7. Beautiful photo! What camera are you shooting with?
    I got my first DCLR camera some months ago and I’m starting to learn digital photography by myself. That’s why I am always curious to know the little details of the shots that I like 🙂
