It’s not what the world holds for you. It’s what you bring to it. ~ L.M. Montgomery

Thanks to neighbors who grow the most beautiful sunflowers! Image acquisition was with my favorite Nikon D850, and a Nikon 70-200mm @200. I shot at f5.6, which produced the lovely shallow depth of field. Shoot with small f-stops (numbers) to enhance your subject and separate it from your background. Subject to background distance is an important factor as well. The further the subject is from the background, the background will appear softer, and less distracting.

So there you have it. A simple strategy to produce photos with more zing . . . smaller f-stops and increased subject to background distance. Happy shooting!

  1. So many thanks for sharing this. It was posted on my birthday and is a stunning photo of my favorite flower. Also the quote from one of my favorite authors made my heart sing. Cheers to you for sharing Beauty all around.

  2. Thank you Nancy for your kind words! A belated Happy Birthday wish that is for a continued life of joyful adventures! I have read all of the Anne of Green Gables series. Anne (a.k.a. Lucy Montgomery) and I are definitely kindred spirits! We share the same love of nature’s splendor, and embrace with passion the little wonders that are all around us!
