This week's theme is about isolating your subject. As someone who dabbled a little on macro photography, it is a topic that hits home whenever I take my macro shots. The depth of field is so small, you are forced to think on the spot which area you would like to focus on before the subject (usually insects) flies off. And having to manually focus makes for great practice that overall improves my reflex to quickly change the focus to certain parts of a subject.
Do I want to focus on their compound eyes, their scaly exoskeleton, their spiny legs or the full body?
I visited the bird park last week too. It was hard to focus with a lot of busy background but here is my attempt.
