WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Focus
This week’s challenge was to take photos to demonstrate the different depths of field one obtains using different apertures – ie shallow depth of field with a wide aperture or the reverse, greater depth of field with a smaller aperture. I actually showed this a few posts back – here – as it had been something covered at our local photo club. None the less, today I spent some time using my macro lens to shoot the same subject ( the fruiting bodies on a pot of moss ) with a range of apertures from f/32 to f/2.8, giving very different results in terms of background sharpness and detail. Personally for this type of photo I prefer a soft blurred background – the very sharp one has too much confusing detail!
