Experimenting with Depth of Field

On the photography rotation our main assignment is to produce eight black and white prints with a theme of light and shadow.  Unfortunately, every time the sun has been blazing away, I have been working in the sculpture room on my pathway project, ‘The Classics’.

So, in the absence of any decent rays to cast a shadow, I went out to experiment with ‘depth of field’.

As usual, Mr P decided he wanted to be in the photos so I had to oblige!

All the field are barren now except for the maize photographed here.  This is only used for animal feed – it’s not fit for human consumption – don’t confuse it with sweetcorn that we enjoy!
As I sit here the sun has set and the moon is now high in the sky, masked slightly by the clouds moving across.  It’s such a beautiful sight, full of mystery and so alluring.
