The other day, Sam picked up one of those flowers that when you blow it, "stuff" goes everywhere (the name of which escapes me right now). Anyway, I had my camera out and thought it would be great to take a picture of the action. My first instinct was to increase the size of my aperture by decreasing my f to 2.5 that way my shutter speed would be fast and the "stuff" would be sharp.
Well that didn't turn out near like I had hoped. Sam and the flower, whose name escapes me, were in focus but the "stuff" got lost in the bokeh of the picture. In hindsight I am thinking that I should have decreased the size of my aperture so more would have been in focus. Now for those of you who are thinking that you would be able to see it better in color, I included that picture too and it isn't much better.
I would love to try this again sometime but since I mow my grass and this flower, whose name escapes me, is a weed, I will have to do some looking around. Any recommendations from you photography types on how I might take this better next time?
