Wine for a Year: Grape Effects

I don’t know how much to say about this one…it’s always hard to talk about abstract pieces. I don’t want to tell you what you should feel or think about it. So I’ll just give you the technical data, and let you find your own meaning in it.

It’s a macro (obviously), shot completely “wrong.” Usually, you stop down your lens (close the aperture as much as you can) to get very deep depth of field when shooting macros. You want as much of the picture in focus as you can get, and with macros, even with your lens stopped down, you don’t keep focus very deep into a scene. As I was setting up the shot, though, I liked the fuzzy look of the grapes, so in addition to shooting a straight picture, using my smallest aperture and having all the grapes in focus, I shot one almost completely unfocused.
