While bumbling through photography over the years, from early beer-tography to more recent scenic and wooden photography, one theme remains the same throughout: Blurry Backs.
I love a good photo with a blurry background. On my old Canon ELPHs, I used the “macro” preset to achieve this effect. Only until I started researching SLRs did I learn that it’s the direct result of a low depth of field. Low-DOFs, perhaps? Nope, the word you’re looking for is Blurry Backs.
I always wanted an SLR but could never justify the cost or impracticality of one. Only until my hand was forced with a failing point-and-shoot — as described in the first post — did I finally give in and buy my first SLR. So while I’m new and horribly inexperienced to SLR photography, I remain very enthusiastic about my new camera! The purpose of this blog is to illustrate just that.
I’m bringing blurry back.
