This magnolia was photographed using a lightbox for sidelight. It was taken with my 60mm lens (1/250 sec f11, 15 images focus stacked in-camera). Keep reading to learn more about our OOF backgrounds (OOF = intentionally out of focus)

The backgrounds were OOF (out of focus) images printed by Jesse Thompson of Milford Photo. When I find an image that has pleasing colors I put the lens on manual focus and defocus the image to taster (usually shooting at f2.8 to f4 to keep the bokeh). When your prints arrive, use a few pieces of double sided tape to adhere them to foam core ($1 dollar store) or matboards (or you can take a back off of a store frame since you cannot get out for supplies right now)
