Project 1 – The distorting lens – Depth of field (3)

Exercise 2.7

Use a combination of small apertures and wide lens to take a number of photographs exploring deep depth of field. Because of the small apertures you’ll be working with slow shutter speeds and may need to use a tripod or rest the camera on a stable surface to prevent ‘camera shake’ at low ISOs. Add one or two unedited sequences, together with relevant shooting data and an indication of your selects, to your learning log.


Picture 1 of 3

This is the entrance to the St Pancras station (London). I have tried a very small aperture of f22 to keep both the foreground and background sharp. Even so it was sunny I had to increase the ISO to 400 to shoot it handheld. The metal signage is more or less in the middle. Somehow looks a bit plain. 40mm equiv at 1/80s and f22
