Ewok View

Shallow depth of field brings a special feeling to a photograph, altering scale and reality so it looks just a little unusual. By setting a wider aperture in your camera, the depth of field will become smaller and the areas nearer to and further away from the camera will be more and more out of focus. By using the most wide aperture possible with my 50mm/f1.8 lens, fixing the focus and exposure, and taking a series of shots to stitch together, I enhanced the shallow depth of field even more to create this photo of a tiny clearing in the forest alongside the Kander river near Frutigen today.
