Example of shallow depth of field

    Newer Older

    If you look closely at the flower on the right (the one I was focusing on) and then the other one (less than one inch behind the other one), you can see a huge difference in sharpness. This was taken hand-held at 145mm, f/4, iso 200 and 1/2000. View Large On Black

      You really captured some superb detail on the flower you focused on. I like the shallow DoF.

      First it's a beautiful image. Unfortunately f/4 is going to give you a shallow dof. Both subjects must be the same distance from the lens.

      I understand DOF and all that and would agree that f4 will give you shallow depth so what I want to know is how come your volleyball shots are relatively sharp front to back at f2.8?

      Beautiful colors. I'm addicted to shallow DoF. I'd like a f/1.0 :)
