Flowering Blackthorn (aka Sloe) at the bottom of our garden; 14 Apr 2010.

Use of a telephoto close up renders the background completely out of focus, and the siting of the subject in front of a paler part of the background is important.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  2. Simple and beautiful 🙂 I like the crop and the balance of light and dark is just perfect.

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
