was in a creative slump today, so I refused to let myself go to Panera and get a bagel until I took a photo I was happy with. This is the result, about 3 hours later, and now I'm really freaking hungry.
your pictures are fantastic. last week your mom showed me your work when I was visiting...I'm your grandmother's cousin in California. It's funny, you take pictures of small things that are very near and I take pictures of large things that are very far...must be in the genes!
Hmmm... now that you mention it I think increasing the DOF on this shot might be beneficial to it. I've been told a few times now that it's too cramped, I suppose I can see that. I'll add this to my list of shots to re-attempt, at some point.

I saw this photo and actually went "Ah!" just because I love it so much! Bokeh isn't really a unique thing when photographing, but I've never seen anyone incorporate it into their pictures like you do! Usually, it's merely a pretty background, but you make it seem like... I don't know! Tangible magic?
what an idea! I love it , love how the bokeh goes from sharp to kind of distressed ! only think I can think of is that on the jar , where theres a lot of color (near the opening) It kind of looks a bit noisy?... Maybe you should check that out ^^ but what a fantastic shot
Yay, thank you oh so very much for the kind words and critique! I tend to have a noise problem when shooting indoors, even though I keep my ISO all the way down... I should probably look into ways to cut back on noise... anywho, thanks again!
lightroom does a great job on noise reduction but photoshop works pretty great as well best thing to do is shoot raw images and then pos process it in camera raw or lightroom , this way you can change everything in the picture without destroying the quality , and it removes noise so much better
