Focal Length 50.0 mm
This week we are learning about focal modes and focal points....basically all about focusing! In this photo I used the right focal point and focused in on Lingling's eye. I chose an open aperture because I wanted to blur everything in the photo that was not within the focal point and I am very happy with the result. :)

I love the effect the open aperture has on this photo too! It looks as if we are peeking over the trunk and planning a sneak attack on her! You did a really fine job locking focus on the eye, as this can be challenging when you want your subject to sit still for a moment. The exposure is great too. Nice work!

Thank you, Candice! I feel like I'm actually getting the hang of this and I'm lovin' it!
