Everything in Focus Never
Most of us don't think about our sight until we have problems. But for millions around the world blindess or limited vision is their day to day experience. One of my companies is Empowermats ( https://empowermats.com ). This project helps blind and visually disabled students learn to participate in competitive robotics. My mentor at the Maryland School for the Blind ( https://www.marylandschoolfortheblind.org ), Gina Fugate, has helped me understand the challenges these students and adults face every day.
Here are some resources.
Experience The Vision Impairment Simulator
We've all seen wonderful images where a particular subject is in focus and the rest of the image is soft, so our eyes are drawn to the main element. This week, we want to see Everything In Focus. This is where your choices of subject, composition, lens selection and depth of field all come together to give us sharp images front to back. Think landscapes, closeup portraits, flat-lays, architecture and more. This challenge will have you thinking of angles, backgrounds and subject separation. All of these elements combine together to give you photographs that have everything in focus - front to back. You could also use techniques like hyper-focal focusing to get things like landscapes in focus. Or even try focus stacking in macro and liquid-drop shots in post-processing to merge exposures and get nice, sharp details all through the image. Experiment, take lots of photos at lots of places of lots of things. That's how we all improve.
