Control your depth of field is this month's photo theme.

For the next monthly photography group meeting in June, the challenge is to work on controlling the depth of field in your images or how much of a photo is in focus. Check out Adam's presentation from the May meeting on the meetup page and then get to work! The trick is to work with the distance from your subject and your aperture settings. If you have an SLR, you can use Aperture Priority Mode. If you have a point-and-shoot camera, check your manual to see how you can change your aperture settings or try using Macro Mode (usually represented by a flower icon).

Try shooting a single subject at different settings and see how the results vary. Then try picking a focal length or a spot on your zoom to use and shoot a range of subjects and see how that affects your results. Have fun--and then come to the June meeting to share your shots!

Tomorrow night, don't miss the light painting meetup with Bill at the Garver Feed Mill at Sugar & Atwood Aves. Plus this weekend, there will be bird watching, a trip to the Milwaukee Art Museum, and the zombie prom this weekend. And don't miss our first ever photo scavenger hunt on Sat May 18th.

Hope to see you there!

Kris Hammargren, Co-organizer
