I am learning some things that I have always wanted to learn about taking pictures. Blurring backgrounds is something I have really been dying to learn to do. Thanks to a favorite blog and my great friend Lori, I learned a little about something called aperture. I also learned that there is Oh so much I just do not know about taking the perfect picture..... But, I am having great fun learning!!!!!
Here are some practice shots:
One of my gardenias that is not quite as white anymore :-(
A picture of Lily that I actually blurred (the background) myself in edit using her technique.
