so sick! love everything about the picture!
Oh hey nice. Are the bullets more in focus than the gun, or should I go get my glasses? Love the colors. Very nice.
Yes, they are. I knew that there was no way I could get all of it in focus, so this seemed best to me.
(Even if I could have gotten all of it in focus, this would probably still look better...)
Damn... I just noticed that you can see the edge of the paper in the upper right corner (just barely).
Sweet !!! :thumbup:
Crank the aperture down to f/22 or something like that, bet it would all be in focus. I think you're right though, this would/will look better.
Little less harsh on the light from the left.
at that distance, even f/22 wouldn't get it all... i'm guess the lens was about a foot away to get that FOV at 50mm... at that distance and focal range, f/22 would only give you an "in-focus" DOF of about an inch - maybe enough to keep the bullets in back as sharp as the ones in front. as it is, for f/5.6 there's more in focus than i would have expected...
More like about 4-5" DOF at 2 feet. Pull back to 3 feet and you will have just under a foot of DOF.

Yeah, it was about a foot or a foot & a half. Pretty close to the minimum focus distance of the 50mm f/1.4 (can't remember exactly what that is off hand).
Wouldn't have worked. If I built a bigger box, maybe.
At that distance I would have had to use a longer lens (which would mean that I would also have to shoot from a lower angle, which means I would need even more DOF). If you look at the top right corner, you can see exactly how close I was to the edge.
I can barely make out anything in the top corner.
With my cruddy 6 YO uncalibrated laptop, that's not a good thing to miss.
I do like the composition though.
It's easy to miss. I didn't see it untill my reply to manaheim.
I'm probably more picky about that stuff than most people though. The edge is a little grey. That's the edge of the paper (it's hard to see because it's not in focus) - it's only a few pixels wide.
I only missed it because it's inside that tiny area that you can't see in the viewfinder.
