Today I'm posting two photographs I took in Cazorla last year, to show you the difference between objects and backgrounds "in focus" and "out of focus" .
The following has an object at the front which is in focus, and the background out of focus:
This one is the other way round, the object at the front is out of focus, and the background in focus:
Can you see the difference? In the first picture, we can see the ice at the front in detail, while in the second picture, it's blurred. The same happens with the background, in the first picture we can only see the blurred shape of the mountains and pine trees, while in the second we can see everything in detail.
Do you think it's interesting to play with focus when we take pictures or make drawings? Personally, I think it's a great way of being more original and realistic when drawing.
Have a nice week!
