    I was assigned a dof assignment. The assignment was to shoot some with limited dof and some with a wide dof. I am shooting on 18-55mm kit lens (set to 55mm. This is not for compositional critique.

    We were given set parameters to work within. Would this get an A from you?

    For ONLY DOF, I guess. But surely they are going to take into account subject matter, time involved, background, etc. right? If not thats a bogus assignment.

    It is a Photography I course with many people who barely know how to turn their cameras on. The Professor is still teaching "technique" so students can operate their cameras. I am waiting for real "assignments".

    But I'm sure if you use a better subject you could get brownie points with the professor if not extra credit. Why wait for "real assignments" when you can take an awesome picture for your technique assignment now?

    I was going to say the same thing, Felix.

    I'll add "Only those who dare to fail greatly, can ever achieve greatly."

    Point taken. I couldn't think of any ideas that fit into his parameters. (He wanted the near object at 1 foot from the lens, the far object at 10 feet from the lens and something in the exact middle.) He also insists that come into class with everything still on memory card instead of already moved onto a flash drive and converted to dng.

    Bitter... I have to say I'm sure you scare a lot of little Photography nooblets off. I think the cold constructive criticism is the best way to go, and do appreciate all that is offered.

    I've learned that the lectures and criticism that cuts the deepest is more often than not the most needed.
