It’s time, once again, to get your creative juices flowing with a contest. This time, though, the subject isn’t what we’re concentrating on. The contest topic is “Shallow Depth of Focus.” No cheating with Photoshop, now! Here’s an image that Jeff Locklear captured, just to get you thinking:

  1. Now here’s a contest I can go for!
    I should have some good stuff after this weekend’s wedding. :)

  2. Quick question… do the photos have to be free of studio-identifying watermarks?

  3. Holly,
    To make voting more anonymous, I would prefer to keep them free of that kind of thing. When posted on the blog, you will be credited, and all will be shown.

  4. Do they have to be “freshly taken” or can they be from our archives?

  5. John,
    I’m OK with you using an existing image. I try not to get too tied up in restrictions, just so it shows off your photography skills.
