  • thanks sweetie!!!! I remember I was trying like the dickens to get as much IN FOCUS as possible!!!! I was all about long dof at that point and wanted to master it. Right now, I’m on a kick to get that dreamy, just right short dof … which reminds me, I need to go pick some flowers, lol!!!!! Thanks again … so glad you enjoyed this one!!!
