This week the photo challenge is all about how aperture and depth of field affect the areas of focus within an image.
Depth of field can also be altered by how close you are to your subject. Today I stuck to photographing one flower, a chrysanthemum, using my 30mm macro lens at f2.8 and manually changing the focal point to show you the different effects.
Being very close to my subject, as well as having a wide aperture, gives me a very shallow depth of field. Changing my focal point from the centre of the flower to the edge of the petal makes a dramatic change to how the subject is viewed.
Which do you prefer?
