I was looking at some images I recently took on a hiking trip. As much as I wanted to like the photos, there was just nothing for my eye to land on in the image. It was a chaotic mess of lines, shapes, and textures. Everything was sharp, but nothing was in focus too much of everything. That image got me thinking about when approaching the making of an image. How do we decide on the point of focus, and what does focus mean and do in an image.
In the podcast this week, the focus is, well, focus. I talk about how we approach our work and what it can do to our process when we get a handle on both camera focus and other forms of focus.
