Circles of Confusion
Our second part of our assignment this week in Photo 112 class concerns depth of field and the concept of circles of confusion. Circles of confusion is a disc of light in the image where a point on the subject is not perfectly brought into focus. The eye cannot distinguish between a very small circle of confusion and a true point.
I've taken quite a few pictures trying to get this assignment and I don't think I have quite conquered it yet. It goes against my nature not to focus on an eye or a central point of interest.
