Black Rhino, Selective Focus

Experimenting with depth of field can be one of the most interesting and rewarding aspects of photography. Our eyes seem to hold everything in focus equally, but that's mostly an illusion — our eyes are simply so fast that they can shift focus between near and far objects without our being consciously aware of it.

Altering an image's depth of field is usually achieved by the choice of lens, aperture, and shutter speed, but it can also be done with software. That's what produced the image of the black rhino above: the original was in color and in focus, but this image was created by the iPhone app MyFilm.

This effect creates an image that we wouldn't normally see in real life. Our eyes shift focus too fast to ever normally see part of a scene in focus and part out of focus. That makes images like this incredibly compelling. Our attention is drawn without hesitation to the portion most in focus, but we also want to explore the out-of-focus areas to understand what's there.
