|Sunset Over the Ashley River, Charleston, SC © Doug Hickok|
This setting sun over the Ashley River was photographed with my camera lens aperture set wide open and de-focused all the way toward the macro setting. This technique is quite the opposite of the traditional way of shooting sunsets, with focus and aperture set for maximum clarity and depth of field.
Although I realize this kind of stylized experimental photography is not for everyone, it was a good exercise for encouraging me to think outside the box...
but not outside my lunch box. I usually like what's inside my leather smiley faced Gucci lunch box.
