    For this week’s challenge, sweat the small stuff. Focus on the details of an object or scene. Use them to tell a story or invite the viewer into your scene. You can use shallow depth of field of course but that’s not the only way! Try using another compositional skill to highlight the details of your photo (exposure, shadows, perspective, selective editing, leading in, rule of thirds...).

    As always, new photos only for the weekly challenge please!

    Thanks. I wish the body wasn't out of focus, but I still like the image.

    The details here are that those addicting Utz Cheese Balls and laptops don't go together. I was too embarrassed to include the trackpad in the photo - it's a mess.
