Black and white photo of silence… almost complete silence on a very cold winter evening with only a single duck stirring the crisp reflections in the water. The soft details in the distance make this photo a special one, as do the silver undertones throughout the image. Taken with a Zeiss 35mm f2 Distagon lens at f/5.6, 1/30 handheld, ISO 3200.

Semi abstract image of the intricate and beautiful roots of a small bonsai tree. The colors in the foreground and background are gorgeous, as is the detail captured in the center of the image. I love shallow depth of field photos like this where the focus guides your eye to the subject of the image, and then the fall off to the surrounding out of focus areas allows your eye to explore the more abstract and artistic rendering of the lens. Taken with a Zeiss 100mm Makro Planar ZE mount lens for Canon.

This is a close-up artistic composition of a painter’s workspace with a playful approach to depth of field. There is almost nothing in sharp focus in this image except for the dry paint swirls where a single ray of sunlight happened to be shining across my ‘canvas‘ that is this image. Taken with one of the most artistic lenses I own, the Carl Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro Planar ZE for Canon. Shot with the aperture wide open at f/2 to create the extremely shallow depth of focus.
