Thirty days in and only 335 more days to go! Today I bring you Dick and Barbara Summers – my father and mother-in-law. As I mentioned yesterday, I photographed Dick Summers in the front yard of the nursing home where he resides. Barbara was there with him and spends just about every day there helping to care for him and keep him company. I invited her into the picture. She was positioned slightly behind Dick so to keep my fairly narrow depth of field, I did a swing on my front lens standard so that the plane of focus when from Dick in the front to Barbara slightly behind him. I didn’t require much swing, just a tad, but worked quite well in keeping both of them in sharp focus.
Here is to two great people I think the world of.
