I’ve been working on portraits again this weekend. What’s better than a pool table? Nothing!
To tie in with my new Depth of Field video on YouTube, I also did some shooting on and around my pool table. Why? Because a pool table is great for illustrating depth of field effects. It’s really a perfect platform for working with narrow depth of field. It is very easy on the table to see what is in focus and what isn’t.
I also went a little crazy with the optikVerve filters, using “60’s magazine” with some modification, also “Smoke” and a few others. Normally, I give you just the straight images on here. But, in the real world, everyone uses Photoshop… so why not?
Here’s a straight example of depth of field differences in two nearly identical shots (except for the focal point with a narrow depth of field). Left-hand image is focused on my eyes. Right-hand image on the billiard balls. Composition is identical… but the two images have a completely different theme. (Nikon D2x, 17-55mm DX)
Here are some samples from the VIP Gallery!!!
