The challenge for the week of Feb 26 to March 4, 2018 at 52Frames.com is the theme of “Depth of Field”. This is about exploring the ways in which the aperture setting on a camera cause a shallow area of focus in an image. Here’s an example done by Lisa Shea, of a flower blossom.
See how the petunia itself is in focus, while the world behind it is out of focus? This is created with a shallow depth of field. The aperture of the lens was wide open, causing that to happen.

The 52Frames.com challenge for this week (ending Feb 18 2018) was Levitation – here’s the entry by Lisa Shea – what did you submit?
She wanted to do something trickier with a meditation cushion but ran out of time. Only 24 hours in a day!
This week’s 52Frames.com challenge is Architecture with extra credit of using a wide-angle lens. What will you try for? Get it in by Sunday, February 11th, 2018!
This is an old photo by Lisa Shea – she has to take a new image this week. She doesn’t have a wide angle lens for her ‘real camera’ so she’s going to play with the one she got for her cellphone.
Here’s what she took for this week. It’s using a lens add-on for her cell phone – you can see it here – Cell Phone Lens Kit
Here is what the scene looks like without the add-on. Lisa is standing in the exact same location. You can see that the wide angle expanded it in all four directions, although it also made it fuzzier.
What are you submitting? Let us know!
