Default Life Wide Open...............At mach 2.8

OK. Been bored not posting so I have decided to do a new one. I do not know where it will lead but here goes. I always try to challenge myself. Last year was trying to find and photo things that look good in B&W. This year, I will be doing color but at a specific aperture. f2.8 There will be "filler shots" as well when I want to post more that can and will be anything. But the weekly photo will be f2.8.

How will it go photographing everyday life with a portrait aperture? Hang around and see.


Week 1 of 52

Christmas Cactus Bloom

Thank you very much Wolf. That is the good and , bad thing about f2.8. The very shallow depth of field. Especially at the 200mm end of my 2.8 lens. I think it's gonna be fun
