“DOF Comparison of Flowers”

I took a photo in the same spot of the same bush of flowers. I wanted to see the difference between each of the f-stops to compare the bokeh from f1.4 to f5 with a 50mm 1.4 Lens

Day 036

February 9, 2011


My Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops Knife was in my camera bag from last night (hiking at night) so I pulled it out and lit it up.

I had no time to do much more than this tonight so I lit the knife around the edges with an LED light left out from yesterday. Then I took a second shot and painted in the knife with a light because it was too dark. I used a flashlight with a cone on the top to prevent spilling any unwanted light.

Merge in CS5 – erase unwanted noise and there ya go. The noise wasn’t much when you use the long exposure noise reduction. Only problem is waiting for it to develop. Makes a HUGE difference though.
