These are Califnoria Wildflowers (state flower), taken a couple of miles from my house.

Sitting here with a red face for not reading the instructions to this board correctly, missed the technique part in the title. I have to admit to not going into the shot with any one technique in mind, just an idea of what I was looking to capture in the shot. Essentially all I did was start with an f-stop in the middle setting range, laid down in the dirt, start shooting while making adjustment to the camera settings. My goal was to have both the foreground and background soft focus, while keeping the subject in sharp focus.


P.S.
Sorry about the long response time, had computer problems at home.

Very nice shot. I lived in Lancaster in 1957 and know your area very well.
