Stretch Your Limbs

Today’s post is another simple image taken from around my home. While I’ve not been able to get out and collect many shots lately I have tried to use the down time to stretch my boundaries. Working with gear that I don’t use near enough like my much neglected 50mm. Experimenting with shallow depth of field, selective focus and a much simplified post-processing workflow have been a welcome distraction from my typical super-sharp HDR images.

Changing gears and working outside your comfort zone can sometimes be the best cure for a creative rut and this change has been just what the doctor ordered.

Gear: Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF 50mm

Software: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, Topaz Adjust 5
