Pic-of-The-day - "A snowman for the rest of us".

In movies & Christmas cards snowmen are large & round and invariably white, completely white from head to toe.

I've been making snowmen on & off for 40+ years and as often as not they look more like this than the "ideal" snowman of tv & advertising. Especially if you live in the city & particularly at the beginning  end of the winter, which is usually when the most enthusiastic snowman propagation occurs.

Pic-of-The-day - "No trespassing".

Sunday Morning in Niagara Falls. I left early that morning so I 'd have time to relaxe with a coffee before work. I forgot the coffee shop opens late on the weekend  so, I took a bit of detour to find a coffee & some breakfast.

Pic-of-The-day - "DOF".

In the photography world 'DOF' is stands for 'Depth Of Field'.  DOF describes how much of the photo is in focus at one time. DOF is usually used in connection to shallow depth of field where only a small part of the image is in foucs. This can be a very striking technique.  Deep DOF (with most of the frame in focus) is often overlooked but, can also be useful & interesting.

I actually find Deep Dof to be a bit more difficult. It's not difficult to achieve, but it's difficult to direct the eye of the viewer to the intended spot. It's easy to direct the eye when theres' only a small area in focus, so easy it sometimes feels like cheating.

Sometimes I need to remind myself to practice deep DOF & use other ways of directing the eye, like colour, leading lines, choice of subject etc.  I really set myself a challenge this morning and I 'm not sure I really achieved what I was trying too, but as they say 'practice makes perfect'.
