    Re: Assignment 14 - Depth Of Field - the wider the better - 7 days!



    I absolutely do not mean to be a pain in the butt, but I find the title a tittle of the thread a little confusing.


    When I first read"Depth Of Field - the wider the better" I startedsearchingthe My Picture folderfor possible submissions which in my mindwere photographs with a wide depth of field, forexample landscapes with everything from foreground tobackground in focus. I found a few potential candidates and opened the assignment thread only to find that "the wider the better" part relates to the aperture!


    As far as theactual topic, I think it is a great one and I am hopefully going to take a fresh photo, just for the assignment!

    That's true. By his following description, I would think "The shallower, the better" would be a more accurate (or less confusing) title. :-)

    Great picture Bob, but the aperture is f/11.


    He said he wants a wide aperture, "open up those apertures"


    Elmo, what do you mean by wide DOF?


    I'm confused too!

    Rich, Thanks. I read all of that as well, But Elmo ended his assignment with " Let's see that bokeh", So...... there is more than one way to achieve bokeh, even at F11. Hopefully I understood his assignment correctly.--If not, I am sure he will clarify []

    I'm SOOOO confused! [:S]

    I was looking thru my photos and I have some with great bokeh with my macro at f/8 and f/11 but figured it didn't qualify. I think I'll break out the 35mm this weekend!

    Hmm, it seems the "circle of confusion" is growing. [:P]


    But I'm going to assume (based upon Elmo's pic example) the contest is about a thin DOF.


    Bob....great HB capture....I was going to enter one of my thin DOF HB pix, but now I'm reconsidering.


    Elmo....the masses need some clarification; do you mean thin or forever DOF?


    Good luck everybody

    So do I have to wait until tomorrow, 11/7 to submit an image for it to count or can I post it today, 11/6?

    Apologies forthcoming...


    It seems like I may have used the incorrect term. At a basic level, your widest aperature that your lens can handle i.e 1.2, 2.0, 2.8. 3.2, 4.0 etc.


    thin DOF would be preffered.


    I wanted something different than the typical pet or tree or portrait shot. I also provided a start date of November 7th to give everyone some time, but if you all wish submit till your hearts content.


    Hope this helps
