Day 143 – Say Cheese

Todays shots are just fun, I saw this happy smile in the toy shop the other day and thought it would be a fun object to try shutter speeds with, and to raise a smile or two.

I had a tripod, my 100mm lens, with lit by window light and playing around with manual settings. I was really hard as the wind up mouth did not want to stay in my field of view… but it was fun to experiment with a cheesy photographers smile!

At 1/100s that was some movement on the jaw. The shot is not particularly sharp as I had manually focused before hand the teeth were moving!

ISO200, F3.2, 1/250 sec
ISO200, F3.2, 1/250 sec
At 1/250 sec, less movement and the eyes are sharp… I think it is a happy smile for the camera – do you?

Finally a wider shot, the shallow depth of field is apparent on the backgound… so you can see how quickly the are in focus disappears.
