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.


Canon lens

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.


I just bought one for my Nikon. Thanks and great job! *

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.


That is a great reminder--and trick...

...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.)
