For Week 12 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 we were supposed to get a deeper focus in our images by using a tighter aperture. Most of the time I shoot with a wider aperture to get an image where the background is more blurred out. So, this week, was a little different shooting for me. We were specifically tasked with shooting at f/10.
Once again, Mr. Bojangles and I set out for our favorite local park. As you can see in this image the background is pretty clear to the point that you can see the person in blue with the black dog.
For comparison, I shot this next image in the same spot with a wider aperture of f/1.8 for a softer focus. You can see how the wider aperture creates more blur in the image as you can’t even tell there is a person in the background You can also notice how even the tiles on the rock Mr. Bojangles is standing on are more out of focus than in the image shot with the tighter aperture.
Now to see more deeply focused images, head over to Edmonton Pet Photographer ~ Mutt Love Photography, and then around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.
