Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

For this challenge, get out there and take a picture demonstrating the concept of focus. Depending on your skill level or type of camera, tinker with the manual settings, use the auto focus feature, or play around with an app.

Daily Post August, 23rd 2013


This week’s photo challenge is all about Focus.  My skill level and camera are both pretty basic and I can’t really tinker with the manual settings but I do like to have fun with apps so the last suggestion above is the direction I decided to follow.

Tuesday’s Photography 101: Finding Your Focus post by Cherie and Matthew George is full of great information and tips for new photographers looking for help when it comes to depth of field and aperture.  For those of us who frequently take photos with our phones the end of the post contains descriptions and links to several apps  that can give our images more interest and dimension during the editing process.

Using this “new-to-me” information I bought the BigLens app mentioned in the final quick tips section and have had fun all week experimenting with iPhone photos.  After using the aperture and filter selections in BigLens I finished with a frame in Snapseed.

  1. Very nice shot! I was really interested to discover on the weekly prompt that Instagram has a focus tool (which I didn’t know about) so it was definitely useful for me because in addition to my canon camera I use my i-phone quite a bit and that doesn’t generally have a lot of functionality in the camera department!
