I decided to take photography in hopes to be able to capture moments of day to day life in a more creative way. I love to take pictures, but I wanted them to be more interesting to look at, even if the story behind them wasn't one that everyone knew.
This image of a drip painting shows a shallow depth of field. The drip painting is clear in the front and blurs as it gets too far or too close to the lens because of the wide aperture. A wide aperture is when a small f-stop is used. If I would have used a larger f-stop, I would have had a smaller opening and the entire image would have been in focus. This taught me how I can use my camera, not just my composition, to make a focal point.
