    Found an old screwdriver set lying around and decided to capture it with my new d5000 :)
    Comments appreciated.

    Thanks Dan, I realize it is a bit overexposed, and even one I posted yesterday was slightly overexposed. I took this with AP and a low ISO of 200 with no flash, should I be going completely manual and adjusting the shutter speed as well ?

    BTW this is the pic from yesterday I am talking about,

    What was your aperture when taking these?

    F/5 for the first one, and F/8 for the lamp

    The lower your F# the more light you let in (brighter pic) if I'm not mistaken.

    You are right, but I wanted a low F for a shallow DOF, so in that case I guess
    I will have to compensate with a higher shutter speed..

    Yeah. Might have tried TV mode to see if it gave you what you wanted or full manual.

    Nothing interesting is in focus. The middle of the bits are. Focus should have at least been on the heads of the bits. It is a good DOF study though.

    No, the lower the number the less light you let in.

    F/2 is a bigger f-number than f/16. Because the f-number is a fraction of the lens focal length (f = 1)

    1/2 is a much bigger number than 1/16. ;)

    The first photo has insufficient DOF for me, unless intended to be an abstract.
