Camas Study 2
When I started 45journal I was really inspired by the photography of Jim Brandenburg. I spent my first year on the blog trying to copy all his photos, and sometimes I still try to capture his style. I wasn't thinking about his prairie wildflower photos when I was at the camas field, but once I saw this shot on the computer I felt that it most closely resembled his style which includes a very narrow depth of focus. Of course I quickly looked up some of his wildflower photos, and realized I still fall short. Looking at his amazing photography makes me want to head back to Camas again on Friday morning with his narrow depth of field in mind. If you're interested in viewing his work, search Jim Brandenburg prairie smoke or JimBrandenburg prairie coneflowers for two really great examples.
