  • Good Use of DOF

    This weeks assignment is all about DOF ( depth of field)
    whether it is a shallow DOF or a greater DOF... make sure it works and think about what you are trying to achieve...

    Shallow DOF..



    Large DOF



    Exif data should still be intact if you wish to participate in the mini contest.... also the image in question should be taken with in the 9th Jan -22nd Jan 2008

    next weeks assignment will be "Minimalism"
    Cheers

    All Screwed Up!

    Not for Assignment
    Assignment DOF
    I shot this using a +1 and a +4 diopter Macro add on filter. This allows for a nice magnification shot with a very shallow DOF. Adding the +2 filter, caused the DOF to become too shallow to tell what was being photographed. This set-up (all 3 macro filters in addition to an 8 diopter Magnifying glass), is what I'm experimenting with for my "Flakey Challenge" on the Games and Challenges page. It's ideal for shooting snowflakes or any other subject less than 1/2 mm in depth. Anyone interested? See the Flakey Challenge thread. My shots are not that great, but Jiminy Clickit has some wonderful images he's been working on. Thanks and good luck.

        I wanted this to look like he is coming in for a landing and focus on the head of this metal dragonfly. How I wish I could capture a real one... Nikon D40

          Here's a little 3 shot panorama from the mountains about 5 minutes from my apartment.

          No EXIF since it's a pano but here's the info:

                Assignment: Good use of DOF
                This one was so much fun to do. I love DOF shots!! I tried very hard to make sure that my main focus object was clear and then the leaves and the small branch still visible but just out of focus then the branches on the ground were hardly visible at all yet you could still make them out. I sure hope it all worked the way I think it did. Lots of fun in this group. SO many Amazing shots on here!!

                        Assignment: Good Use of DOF

                        I had a lot of fun playing around with various props tonight, but in the end I think this one came out pretty well. I don't know how well the depth of field is... still a newbie.




                        Quick question... the exif data's missing cause I had to clean up some dust in the gimp. Does anybody know how to keep it intact despite editing? The original photo can be found here.

                            Nice shot; I like the subject and colors.

                            As for copying EXIF, I've used ExifTool to get around GIMP's "forgetfulness". Here are some copying examples.
