Inspired by the 1930's famous group of photographers that lived in and around San Francisco that called themselves the F/64 club. It wasn’t that they actually used this very small f/stop but rather it was the idea of infinite depth of field that intrigued them. Before, for decades, photography had many adherents to a romantic soft focus or selective focus style. Using a small aperture meant that there wasn’t a specific obvious plane of focus, thus the viewer could make their own choice on what was important to them about the image and not be ‘told’ by the photographer where to look. It was used by a variety of photographers in a variety of subject matters but even eighty years later the impact of these photographers and the then revolutionary idea is still palpable. In landscape photography for instance having an infinite depth of field or at least largely so is still considered proper and desirable. It is in this spirit of vision that this group of largely Yolo County photographers have come together to critique each other’s work. The eight artists all have different interests, different visions but one common passion that is to perfect and develop their specific talents. All ages are welcome and encouraged to visit the gallery located on the beautiful grounds of the Davis Cemetery.
