We have to go into town on Saturdays so its unlikely I will either ... I am assuming it will all be there when we come back late afternoon !

As I dont drive here I dont have options and there is no public transport as we are in the middle of nowhere.

Understanding Depth of Field:

Stop-down your aperture.

The aperture on a lens refers to the "eye" of the camera. The lens aperture is similar to the pupil of an eye. If it is dark outside, your pupil will dilate. The same holds true for your lens aperture. This is also referred to as the f-stop setting. The higher the f-stop number, the smaller the aperture. The smaller the f-stop number, the larger the aperture.

Try stopping down to a larger aperture, which means a smaller f-number. You can try starting with f/2.8. The lower your f-stop number, the shorter your DOF is going to be. The higher the f-number, such as f/22, the more of the picture will be in focus.

Mom was a wondering what kind of camera ya'll are using. If you don't wish to post dem here could ya pmail me with what you be a using. Mama is still owed a birday pawsent maybe dis could be what we gets her. Or it could be an very early mother's day pawsent. Oh oh I knows it could be a pawsent for Sandy's birthday & me's gotcha days. Whatcha all fink???

Mom said dat she is missing her old 35mmm camera from da year of da flood. Not quite sure what dat means. Oh, Sandy just told me that it means it's an old camera & dat it uses film. What's filmshrug Me only knows bout dis digital stuff smile

Midnight check the Welcome thread. Many pups posted their cameras. A lot of pups got new ones for Christmas. Looks like the Rebel T3 was a favorite for gifts. Gunner got one at Walmart for a good price but got it during the Christmas sales.

Sorry I guess I thought I wrote something about adding interest in the challenge. I guess I didn't. It's easy to capture the depth of field part but wouldn't it be a much more interesting photo to have something in the background or foreground that is much more interesting than just the blur? As a Judge I would find it much more interesting to see something. I'm just sayin'

I had the standard blurry background at first too but I took some more pictures and I think I have my photo big grin
