The move brought a myriad of change, chiefly a new backyard to discover. The meadow was artificial, dug as a stormwater drainage site with a network of irrigation pipes underneath to prevent the local homes from flooding. The area atop was left to grow naturally, attracting local flora and fauna. Finding myself intrigued, I tried to explore new styles of photography, trying to draw scenes from a seemingly everyday natural area. By lowering the f-stop to 2.8, I was able to create a shallow depth of field and draw subjects out. This is something I find very interesting and will work on more in the future.
