Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Examples of DOF. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


This could be an indoor or outdoor activity! Show us some examples of Depth of Field!


Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

I recently dropped my old smartphone and it didn't survive. I picked up a Pixel-XL3 and was making some comparisons with my Sony camera. One of the XL3 modes is "Portrait" which does some computational photo magic and adds bokeh, so this little demo seems perfect for this weeks topic.

First 3 shots with the Sony and a Zeiss Loxia 35mm lens at f/2 at about 11 inches distance. From left to right the focus point is front image, the handle, and the rear rim of the cup. A very narrow depth of field at that distance.

The left side is the original shot, and the right is the XL3 "Portrait" version with the reduced DOF.

Tim, that's a hard act to follow.

So. Shallow DoF with lights and reflections. Taken in hair salon while waiting near front window on cloudy day.

Does the sphere float or did you remove something in post? :O

The sphere floats in front of the lens. It’s called a Soratama filter. More information available at the following website.

Ooooooh, that's brilliant! I've seen my share of ads for spheres when browsing Instagram, but never have I seen this :D

Wow. That is pretty cool. I have recently been looking at spheres, but I have developed some tremors and shaking that might
make it very hard to hold it steady. This may be the answer. Do you really need to have an extension tube on between the camera
body and the lens?

Yes, extension tubes are required in order to get the lens to focus. My setup is as follows (lens mount to front of lens): Canon 12 mm and 25 mm extension tubes (although any brand will work), Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L lens, the 20mm Soratama extension tube and finally the Soratama filter with round ball at the very front. The 20mm Soratama extension tube acts as a spacer so the round sphere does not touch the front of the lens. I tried different combinations and this one works with this specific lens. I'm sure there are other combinations that will work though, just takes a little trial and error.

If the Soratama filter was 82mm, I would use it with my EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L ii USM lens, but this particular lens has an 82 mm filter diameter.
