Isolate the Subject - Macro Monday


We are learning how to isolate our subjects this week to make them stand out. There are many ways to do this: composition, colors, depth of field.

Today is Macro Monday so we are going to really get in close to the details. In my subject photograph, the bee is highlighted by the depth of field I used and the color of the flower as a contrasting pop.

I was using my 100mm macro lens and I had an f-stop of 4. If you want to really isolate your subject using depth of field, the wider the aperture the better. I stayed with f4 so that the flower would remain in focus.

Excited to see what you find today!
