Day 64 of 366
Well, I discovered this neat little technique called freelensing, which allows you to emulate a tilt-shift effect by detachting your lens from your camera body and "tilting" it to change your plane of focus. Of course I had to try it myself at once!
It's shot at f/1.4, so you normally wouldn't be able to have both the fore and the background in focus. But with this trick, I altered the plane of focus so that the diagonal line of the dumbbell was in focus, while the sides of the image start to fade into bokeh.
I liked this trick so much, I tried it again the next day with a self portrait, be sure to check it out!
Shot with my Canon EF 50mm 1.4 @ f/1.4, detached from the body.
