Flowers in the Park — by Focus Shift

C'18~55 F'shift

In here the shots of the Flowers in the Park, taken by Focus Shift 

using the Canon FD 50 mm F1.8 or EFS 18~55 Zoom lens.

Well, not necessary everything was flower.  🙂


06-Pec'R-F'shift-Flowers x2 Lens2-001


Since this plant above is a cousin of Hydrangea, the white decorative part around 

are not a flower, in strict botanical term, they are called sepals (a kind of leaf).


09-Pec'R-F'shift-Flowers x2 Lens-001


As the camera was hand-held, not only the Bokeh created by the shifted focus

(= intentionally added out-of-focus bokeh) but also the blurr by the shake

might be mixed as well.  Shifting the focus on the Canon EFS zoom was done

by driving their AF motor and the FD 50 mm lens was purposely modified to

do the shift.

    Great collection. I especially like the hydrangea and the rose.

      Thank you Bente. White flower shows nice effect. (I’m going to show pretty “Forget me not” ) 🙂

      Dandelion is the most steady regular staff for a photographer = if not much good subject, pick a dandelion. 🙂
