A photo of the remnants of the season.

Remnants

 

I liked the subdued colors of the old pomegranate hanging on the barren tree branches. I could picture a photograph in square format hanging in a kitchen or dining room nook.  I am starting to “see” photographs more and more as I walk through this project.  Thinking about photographs every day keeps me connected with the thought process of selecting and framing subjects.  I am seeing more and more subtle light and tone.  

For an image like this, keep the depth of field shallow with a large aperture (small f-stop number).  This will keep the background sufficiently blurred to keep focus on the subject.  

Take the time to stop and consider a photograph today.  What is your subject?  How would you frame it?  What techniques will you have to use to make the shot?
