Capturing the Crabapple Blooms
In case you missed my first post about the flowers and blooms of spring, I was playing with a camera that I don’t use as much that has an awesome prime lens for getting great bokah (blurred background from a shallow depth of field). Using this lens was great for isolating just a few of the blooms of my crabapple tree.
SHALLOW DEPTH OF FIELD
BEES AND CRABAPPLE BLOSSOMS
The shallow depth of field provides a beautiful background to the flowers, but it can also make it difficult to capture moving objects in focus. For that reason, I was really happy with these busy bees that I was able to capture among the blooms.
