Depth of Field Task

f/5.6 | 1/320 | ISO 100


f/11 | 1/80 | ISO 100


f/32 | 1/80 | ISO 400


I took these shots to demonstrate the difference in using different levels of aperture when taking stills or filming. A lower aperture like f/5.6, as seen in the first picture, gives the focus point an in focus area whereas further out the image is blurred. The second image is in f/11 and shows a medium depth of field where the second pole is more in focus but still slightly blurred and the third pole is completely out of focus. The last image at f/32 has everything in the frame fully in focus.

Next we were tasked with recreating shots from films to show one with shallow depth of field, one with medium and one with deep depth of field.
