30 Days with the Fuji 35mm f2: Day Twenty-Two

As you can probably tell by my distribution of shots throughout this project, I love shooting the sky. Sunrises and sunsets are obviously incredible subjects, but I like daytime sky shots as well. Maybe it’s just because the move back to Colorado is still fresh…when I was living in Chicago, I just didn’t see very many great blue skies with puffy white clouds…grey, overcast horizons were much more common.

Shooting skies also allows me to get off landscape style shots without having to worry much about the depth of field issue I’ve been running into…when the majority of your subject matter is thousands of miles away it doesn’t really matter whether you’re at f/8 or f/2. In this case, even though the tree was somewhat close, it wasn’t a big deal to focus on the tree and ensure that it was tack-sharp since any loss of focus in the clouds wouldn’t be recognizable (and could even add to the feel of the image by enhancing the soft, dreamy quality of the clouds).
