2-Depth of Field Assignment:
This assignment had us shooting photo's at f-stop from a large aperture(f-2,f-2.8) to a small aperture(f-16,f-22)we also would have to change the shutter speed to maintain the poper exposure for each picture.
After devoloping the negatives and proof sheets we then had to choose 2 of our best one either one of each depth of field or 2 of same so I choose these 2 which have a narrow depth of field.
In this assignment we experimented with textural/close-up photographs.The images could be of nature, plants, veetable,etc..Then we had to experiment with the lighting in and out doors as well as the different times of day. So these are just a couple of the ones I took and liked very much for more of my work look on the Gallery page.
