Purple Haze, Shooting Through Subjects

Posted: September 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

 

With this image I used a technique of shooting though one subject to another. The purple haze you see in the foreground is from Purple Vetch flowers. I positioned the Vetch in between my camera and the poppies. By focusing on the poppies and shooting my 180 macro lens wide open at f/3.5, the shallow depth of field totally blurred the Vetch, and turn it into a purple haze. We know that a small f/stop will blur the background subjects, and it will have the same effect on the subjects in the foreground by blurring them as well. I positioned the large poppy in the left third of the frame as it looks less composed then placing it in the center of the frame.
