from two weekends ago, some photos from San Francisco's Cherry Blossom Festival parade. nikon d2h, 70-200mm f/2.8 VR. i've been shooting with this combination for over a year now, but on this shoot i had more OOF photos than i usually get. i did try something new, setting the aperture to f/4 to get a narrow DOF, but i think it was a bit too narrow. i had accidentally turned on group focusing, and i locked the focusing to the center sensor. too many small mistakes, but i only have myself to blame :x

hi all-

thanks for the kind words. street fairs and parades are fun events for me as the subjects are usually very colorful and they're putting on a show.

as spring and summer progress, i'll post more shots from the events in san francisco.

thanks again,

ricky
