Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Light my Fire

Besides my favorite Doors song this challenge is all about fire, either man made or natural. To make this a true challenge, no sun pics. I know its a giant ball of fire but this is about flames..:-)

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Shallow Depth of Field

What is a Shallow Depth of Field (DOF)? Well its basically having your subject in focus in the foreground and blurring out the background. I myself like a shallow DOF when photographing flowers or bugs. Sometimes you can get the effect by pan shooting on a moving subject like a car or motorcycle. To achieve a shallow DOF with a DSLR just set the F-Stop to the lowest setting, my Sigma 105mm Macro goes down to a F2.3 setting. See what ya’ll can come up with for this weeks challenge.. :-)
