    I went out to the city today and tried out some various DOF techniques. My main goal was to try and use DOF to focus the attention on a certain part, while blurring the surroundings. I want to get a faster lens to help improve this, but here is what I got with my 18-55 lens. C&C please!

    to add another question, for photo #1, how would you be able to just get a tight shot for the 3 bolts forming a triangle in the middle of the pic?

    Your perception on these photographs is so unique! You have the creative juices flowing for sure! I like that you practiced depth perception from all angles. The photographs came out very well, keep more coming!!!

    F-stop 3.5 on your 18-55mm compared to a 1.8 will create a significant difference in the DOF. I have the cannon 50mm f1.8 and love it just for that fact. Plus it's amazing for low light.

    Good pictures i like them. If you got a shallower depth of field it would be better but still good none the less.
