When I was in school, I was the kid who finished my assignment 3 days early, who completed every step of my science experiment, and was devastated at every mark below 90%. The camera challenge, well, not so much. My first issue was getting the time, during the daytime, to set up and photograph my items. And second was actually re-reading Katy’s instructions beforehand lol.So anyway, here is how far I got, and I completely neglected setting ISO so the photos were a tad dark and I had to tweak them in the editing software.
The first shot is what came up as default when I switch to Aperture mode, f8. The actual depth of field, from the front to the back spool, was about 12″ (30 cm).
Next I chose f5–nice artsy blur to either side. I’m not sure how low I could go (see above about not reading the directions).
Finally back to the other side, at f20. Still not completely in focus, but closer.
My thoughts — I like having the control of the aperture, and now that I know more about setting I will practice some more. With the shot below of my #rainbowswapmini, I wish I had set the aperture so that the entire mini was more in focus, although the blur is charming it wasn’t quite what I wanted. But when I look back through other shots, for instance this shot of my Christmas cross stitch has the background blurred nicely.
