Beyond, Beyond - Week 3 - Focal Point


Week 3's challenge from Kim was to experiment with different focal points. I chose to make another still life setting. Kim's class is a good one for me to play with still life photography, something I would not normally do.

The thing I find challenging about still life's is: I like too many of the ones I take and it is hard to narrow down my choices. When I am out in nature I don't get to play for an hour on one scene.

These two were taken in a room with west and south facing windows. I know this lesson wasn't on light, but wow did I find a difference.




These were taken on a different day in a room with a north facing window. I was so surprised at the difference between the two rooms. The bedroom might become my new still life studio.

  1. A fantastic set of images Sarah. Indeed I couldn't choose a favourite between them. I tend to take more photos when I do still life and I also think it is these which are clogging up my hard drive!

  2. This is a great study of different focal points, but what's really fascinating is to see how much cooler that north light was. If I had to choose, I think the second shot would probably be my favorite.

  3. Nice study. I love north light although shadows always make it interesting too. It's fun to just play and learn while you're doing it!
