Exercise: Focus with a Set Aperture

by Suzy Walker-Toye

So, to kick off my new OCA photo course I’ve started with the exercise on page 29 in the course materials. Here are my three fixed aperture photos with the focus shifted for far, centre and near. I prefer the first one, with the focus set back. The netting & water drops make a bold contrast on the light behind and I like the sparkling bokeh of the out of focus near droplets.

These photos came about off the back of my little self portrait in water droplets experiment below.
