Tag Archive: shallow depth of field


Bokeh Dreaming…

It’s a time of the year in which photographers have more opportunities than usual to play around with lights. The weather here has been lousy for weeks now, but there are plenty of possibilities to take some nice photos indoors. Besides the obvious pet portraits you can play around with still life photography or abstract images. How about exploring the macro world inside your home?

Whatever you celebrate (or not), I wish everyone a great time: take a break from the bad news and social media, try to relax as best as you can, have a nice video chat with family members you cannot visit right now, go outside (if health and weather allow) for a long walk – and don’t forget your camera if you do. 😉

Stay healthy!

Chillaxin’ Caruso

Cats, the masters of relaxation. Just take a look at youngster Caruso here and tell me you don’t feel at least a bit more chillaxed right away.
Laziness as an art form – I love it!

Next up: more pics from my last mountain trip.

Whoa, Nellie!

Nellie1

Sorry, I just could not resist the allusion to Nelly Furtado’s debut album (mind the different spelling though).

This is – you might have guessed it by now – Nellie. She’s a cute one, albeit a bit shy. Might have made some bad experiences with humans in the past, I’m afraid. Hopefully, she’ll be gaining more trust in the future.

Shots taken during the “blue hour” after sun set with my nifty fifty wide open.
I like the typical full-frame look with its shallow depth of field here.
