    1. Hi Lesya, thank you.
      The soft focus comes from using a macro lens at a small aperture causing only a small area of focus. If you use the lens in manual mode you have complete control of what specific area you want to focus on and the rest of the image will be out of focus, causing the dreamy effect.

  1. Great shots Karen!!! Did you achieve the blur with post-processing?? or with a real low aperture?? Very curious to know how you created these shots…. They are fantastic!!! πŸ™‚ **

    1. Hi Xandre, thank you. πŸ˜€
      These are indeed taken with a small aperture. The focus adjustments are made with the macro lens in manual made.
      (The softness and blur are there because of the camera settings) I’m glad you like them!

  2. Similar to that Jeri-fish picture, you are the expert to show the world somewhere
    between [exists or not exists] —– or beyond of what we can see.

  3. One of my favorites posts from you that I can remember. Almost too delicate to look at, looks like they’ll blow away or break.

  4. extraordinary images of ordinary objects – that’s what artists bring to our world, they help us to see things in ways we would have never seen them before. And we thank you for this πŸ™‚

  5. As if they are from one of my forgotten dreams. Loved these, Karen. The softness and delicacy is all over! πŸ™‚

  6. We pass by these little wonders every day , too used to our normal perspective. Thank you for diving in the world of details and for taking us there with you. I wonder how would it be to live in such world… Magnificent series!
