Photography – Depth of field

Posted: October 7, 2012 in photography, week6, week7

“Using SRL camera, practicing the use of manual camera controls. In this first learning activity you are going to experiment with the aperture and manual focus. (In the next learning activity you´ll be setting manual shutter speed).

You are going to experiment with depth of field creating two series of photos:

  • Landscape (using large depth of field)
  • Close-ups (using shallow depth of field)

Seasonal images (summer, fall, winter, spring) should be the theme for these photo-series.
You are required to use manual focus on all of the photographs, and write down the camera settings for each shot.”

LANDSCAPE (use of large DoF) (used tripod, polarizing filter, auto WB and 18mm focal length) No photoshop editing except for file sizing. Please ignore the unintentional framing.

1/80 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100

1/15 sec; f/11; ISO 100

1/6 sec; f/18; ISO 100

1/4 sec; f/22; ISO 100

 

CLOSE UP: (handheld, used polarizing filter, auto WB) No photoshop editing except for file sizing. Aperture wasn’t changed, just the focal length.

1/40 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100 at 135mm

1/25 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100 at 200mm

1/50 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100 at 200mm

1/20 sec; f/5.6; ISO 100 at 75mm
