A Waterfront Field Trip

Digital original
When taking students of field trips, I often turn my cameras to making "compositions" as I call them - photographs that are more about the use of composition and camera decisions than subjects.

I have always loved shallow depth of field, but usually use it on portraits or images of the Nude; in this case however, the brass pins on the tall ship were too lovely to pass by - and the shallow depth of field was just perfect to focus the attention on the lead pin.

On the walk back from the field trip, I noticed a lovely sky - just perfect for infrared - and quickly found a composition to take advantage of it.
