Today I conducted an experiment – that it what this blog is all about – learning and experimenting with photography. So today I looked at how moving my feet, changing the camera angle and the distance from the image I wanted to photograph effected the depth of field.
- Plain white A4 paper as background
- The necklace I was given on Valentine’s day
- My canon 60D, handheld with no flash but in a room lit well with daylight (conservatory)
- My canon 100 mm lens – fixed length, set at 0.31m focusing ability.
- Camera settings – ISO 100, F2.8 , Aperture priority – so the time the shutter was open varied slightly.
- The closer I am to the object the stronger the depth of field, and the less of the image that is in focus
- The further away I am, more of the focused object (I focused on the “o” each time) is sharp
- Depth of field /Aperture control is essential to get right when you are working close up to images.
