I was experimenting on the weekend with DOF. Please let me know what you think.
Camera Make: PENTAX Corporation
Camera Model: PENTAX *ist D
Image Date: 2008:08:02 17:39:31
Flash Used: No
Focal Length: 140.0mm (35mm equivalent: 210mm)
Exposure Time: 0.022 s (1/45)
ISO equiv: 200
Metering Mode: Matrix
Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)
I was wondering how you got such good DOF with f/5.6 and i see its because of the focal distance. Nice shots in terms of DOF, i would put more of a solid neutral background behind the guitar though
i like the first more, the second trails off too much, the texture of the guitar in the first also pulls it together well
I know im new but maybe if the whole amp was in focus on the second it would look better? Just a thought.
I like it simply because I just started playing the guitar 6 weeks ago
Stuck on the stinkin F chord (no, the "F" doesn't stand for that, to all you non-guitar players.... )
Wish I had a nice electric though. Mine is just a cheap junk acoustic.
Actually not my guitar. It's my Uncles, and the amp was a rental that he had. But a nice setup regardless. It's actually a BASS amp, not a guitar amp.
I think the focus should be on the first knob with an increased DOF.
I actually did do that shot as well, but I didn't think it looked at good as this one did.
I like the 1st, the DOF's really nice. A wee tip, give it a bit of a dust and polish before shooting, especially around the bridge and pick-up area. The camera will always show up the skank the eye doesn't see (as I discovered recently).
Nice guitar btw, what is it?
I like the first one, i've always like the way guitar strings go as the focus feathers out. I can see the cutout for the tone control but i can't see the selector, i'd just like to see more! that's my only crit really..
A good dusting and shine is required, i know all about it, took ages trying to get this one clear, little bits kept appearing out of nowhere!
(i think i was testing out my 50mm there, shot with Velvia 100 i believe)
Nice pic. Did you flip the picture, or are you a lefty bass player?
play the guitar left-handed.. don't play bass though, i just bought that to add to a few tracks i recorded. I suck though. lol
