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.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; digitally given a blue tint like old Polapan film, using Alien Skin’s Exposure 2.

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.
