Pretty amazing really how shallow DOF can isolate an object like this. It’s like entering a new world, and I find it very fascinating. Above shot is taken with the Sigma DP2.

By nature
As some of you noticed we like mushrooms, and fall in Sweden is like candy store for kids. These mushrooms are called Trattkantareller in Swedish and Cantharellus tubaeformis in Latin. Now you know. And we will dry them and use them during the cold and inhuman Swedish wintertime. See above shot at original size.

Here follows some shots that been on flickr for some time, but without me saying much. These are a bit Strobist as you can see how I did most of them. :) Btw, Everything in this post is developed using Silkypix. I actually learned more on how to use Silkypix since I developed these but they’ll do for now.

    First picture does not work for me. Still for me isolating objects by DOF only is a hit or miss, as I can see the result only correctly on a bigger screen. Other important methods how to isolate an object are lighting, perspective and positioning within the frame. If all well done => :)

    Very shallow DOF, indeed. I like your natural light photos, especially the 2nd one. It has some “the red hood story” flavor and some baby lens flavor. I hope the Red Hood is picking mushrooms and not doing something else in the woods ;)

    For the other scenes, I would use a lot less artificial light, if you really want to use it and match its WB with the scene’s WB. Maybe I don’t understand the idea behind it, your “different approach” but , hey, it’s my fault because I don’t like artificial light at all. I would use a big bouncer instead
