As I’ve said, my poetry is thin depth of field floral photography. I take these shots handheld (tripod feels too limiting) and shoot fast primes usually wide open at f/1.4 or 1.2. Razor thin dof which does wonderful things with the rest of the out of focus shot.
I’ve noticed reading feedback that many people assume I created the background in photoshop. These shots are straight out of my camera and aside from a little sharpening and white balance warming, untouched.
Does it matter? I used to get frustrated about people assuming my art was manufactured. Now they seem to think I’m a photoshop master, slaving away for hours with Gaussian blur.
I should add that when these are printed on canvas, people think I’m a master painter. But that’s another topic…
Do I need to educated the masses about fast primes, or should I just let it lie.
