This Week’s Photo Contest: Shallow Depth of Field

The theme for this week’s photo contest is shallow depth of field, so make sure to submit your images shot at a wide aperture. The Canon 50mm f/1.8 and Nikon 50mm f/1.8 are both amazing and inexpensive lenses for creating out of focus backgrounds.
Try experimenting with out of focus elements in the foreground of your images to add interest!
