the Alabama player (at the row below and one plaque to the left) is looking up at Lujack with a not very happy face bring good vibes / omen of good things for the Irish on 1/7???
Go Irish..and Happy New year to all!
What lens and aperture setting are you using for these types of close up photos with the narrow depth of field? I especially like your photos of fences and Christmas ornaments which show the same effect as this Lujack plaque photo. I also have a Canon DSLR camera and wondered how I can get the same effect. Thanks.
Thank you for your comments! On these types of photos I am using a 50mm lens with a low f stop. The low f stop (1.8 for example) creates a shallow depth of field. If you want to achieve a similar effect, I recommend the canon 50mm 1.8 lens...it's relatively inexpensive and a great lens.
depth of field.
So, I imagine these shots are low f-numbers, short (relatively) exposure times.
The way I always remember this is that pin-hole cameras have very large depths-of-field. If you wear glasses, take them off and then make a very small hole to look through with your index finger. If you look through the small hole, things will appear more in focus.
...I have pretty decent vision, but anything closer than 10 inches to my face gets very blurry without glasses, and anything over 10 feet starts to blur a bit.
I just punched a tiny hole in a receipt with a ballpoint pen and tried reading through it at about 6 inches--no problem! (Other than having to move along word by word.)
