Focal Length:168mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

This shot is a good demonstration of “something near, something far.”

Using this rule of thumb can turn a simple subject into a more interesting photo.

This shot, for example – if it were only of the foggy barn, it would look like a blurry, technically poor photo. Add the weeds and fence post in the foreground – which show up clearly – and now the photo has depth, perspective and the blurry background is explained as fog, not poor focus.

I took this last winter on some back country road in the Shedd/Tangent/Lebanon, Oregon area somewhere. In Linn County, of that I am sure!

  1. Beautiful. One of my projects is trying to capture “Middle America.” This is so reminiscent of the theme I am going for. Absolutely beautiful!

    • Thank you. What do you mean by “Middle America”?

      • My husband is from Missouri. Where he’s from specifically, there’s nothing but rolling hills, some rustic scenes, and some barns. I’m trying to put together a compilation of these photos for that project.

  2. That sounds like a fun and interesting project! Bet you’re having fun with that.
