Clickin Moms Blog Circle l June l Shallow DOF l NC Lifestyle Photographer

If you have been following our Clickin Moms Blog Circle you know it is time to showcase our next assignment. :) June's assignment was Shallow Depth of Field (DOF). This is one of my personal favorite types of photographing a subject. It is a great way to showcase the details and showoff the beauty. Shallow DOF is also a wonderful tool to blur the distractions in a background that can take away from your subject. The blur surrounding your subject is called bokeh. Below is one example of shallow DOF and how it helps to define the subject of my photo. To see more examples of shallow DOF continue our blog circle and  check out the talented Kayla Goode's photos!Image

Clickin Moms Blog Circle/ January: Up Close Portraiture

I am so excited to be apart of my first blog circle with a wonderful and talented group of ladies from Clickin Moms forum! Each month we will each participate in a photography technique and share our photos via our blogs. Each of our blog posts will link you to the next photographer's post. We all get to enjoy the circle of inspirational photos! The theme for January is Up Close Portraiture. I love the emotion and detail captured by this type of shot. Every session I shoot I try to ensure I shoot at least one close up of each subject. These type of shots not only showcase the beauty of the eyes, smile, and dimples but also the mood. Photography is a superpower! :) It is amazing how a few pixels can share the drama, laughter, sorrow, or celebration. You can never be too close to these smiles!
