Assignment

Many eons ago, when I was a kid, I used to have fun watching how the world changed by looking through a transparent glass of water. Let's recreate that feeling this week by Shooting Through Something - basically have something between your lens and your subject that "interferes" with the viewer's view of your subject. It could be something as simple as leaves in front of your lens, or the subject's hand like in the example photo above. Or if you wanted a more dramatic effect, you could use a piece of glass like a lens ball, a prism, a magnifying glass, etc. A thin plastic bag or kitchen plastic film (cling film / Saran wrap) over your lens can produce some very creative looking effects too, but you really don't NEED any special props this week. The idea is that if something is very close to your lens, and your focus is further away, you will create a dreamy, shoot-through effect. This is of course more exaggerated with a shallow depth of fields (wide aperture, smaller f/ number). Go ahead and experiment and have fun! You could do portraits or street photography by shooting through a window with some reflections showing up, or go the creative route and use vaseline on an old lens filter (DO NOT APPLY ANYTHING TO YOUR PRIMARY LENS OR SENSOR). The idea is that your foreground, even if it's blurry, becomes part of your story. So, let's get creative in a new way.
