Abstract Macro

While in the woods yesterday I was playing around with my extension tubes and f/1.8. A lens wide open leads to a shallow depth of field, which can be as narrow as a a few millimeters giving not much room for error when it comes to focusing. When you add extension tubes to the lens you also get a shallower depth of field, add in an open lens and you get a sometimes only a slice of a mm in focus.

Knowing this I thought I would take some pictures focusing on one point but leaving most of the frame out of focus to allow the bokeh (to read more about bokeh check out this post) to create an abstract image.
