    This is a technical assignment to use low aperture settings (or wide apertures) f/2 and below.

    Small f/stops like f/1.8, f/1.4, and so on decrease the Depth of field (DOF) decreasing the clarity and sharpness of the background beyond the subject. Use of such open apertures generally requires sharp on the spot focusing of the subject at hand, as only that within the Depth of field will be in focus creating that known as Bokeh (or appearance of out-of-focus areas) surrounding the subject.

    As always New shots only please :D.

    WTF?

    How many assignments are on tap now? MissMia and Monkeykoder had 'em going already. Is this something different? There is already a "Shallow Depth of Field" thread.

    BTW, your Bokah is actually spelled Bokeh.

    The Bokeh was an error in spell check software, Also there have been three asignments for the past few sessions two for subject and one for technical, also deadlines have been added for several reasons including but not limmited to reuse of subject matter. BB, MissMia, Monkeykoder and I have been chatting about this.

    Pertaining to the Techincal assignments:

    ok, forgive my ignorance.. but how do you do that?, I looked on my lens and couldnt find anything to adjust.

    Maybe my lenses dont do that?

    Jimmy, it is a lens thing. Going on the info in you sig, your lenses aren't capable. Thus the paradox of this assignment. It should be open to all, regardless of their equipment. Sorry dude.

    Yeah, I just figured out how to adjust it on the camera, however my camera wont go below f4.5. oh well I dont get to play this time, I will just read and take notes.

    Thanks Kundalini!
