Photo of the Day (Depth of Field)

Today’s experiment with film was depth of field. Not a lot of depth of field, but that shallow depth of field that makes your image in the foreground stand out and pop. With a digital camera, unless the background is very far away from the subject, almost everything is in focus. With a film camera, aperture will help you control depth of field. So, I took my camera out in the backyard and took pictures of a vase of tulips (tulips stay still and don’t complain about having to pose for pictures like children do.) Can you see the difference in the depth of field in the 2 pictures? Doesn’t the vase of tulips stand out more in the second picture?
