Well, I’m trying for Bokeh as opposed to just poorly focused photos. These were all taken yesterday morning just as it started to sprinkle – had to run in to stay dry at the end there. I am not super satisfied with the sharpness of the main flowers – I understand what the issue was. I was using my 50 mm at 1.8, and sometimes I was too close – think I culled the worst of that out before I posted any flowers. Also, didn’t have a tripod and was shooting at around f/100 with a little breeze. So, camera shake as well as moving subject are possibility.
The results are a very narrow depth of field with flowers that were not tiny, so only a part of the flower (often a small part) is in focus.
