    Nothing too amazing here. DOF can be improved in 1 and especially in 3. Obviously you were bored. :lol:

    Yes I was bored, that's why I said it in the title...

    This was done out of frustration and boredom alone haha.... I don't have any descent backdrops in my house that's why I wanted such a narrow DOF in the first one....but just after I posted this I thought that I actually probably could have made a descent photo out of it if I had put my bag behind the books, gotten the books in focus and left the bag and everything behind it in the OOF area

    In the last one I tried to get the monkey as the only thing IF... I think I succeeded? This was really just meant to be a joke shot

    Obviously I was taking these because I was bored at 1AM...but the more I look at them I think I could make something out of the concept of the second one (the bible). Anyone have any ideas about how I could make a shot like that more interesting? What would be a better context for it, like maybe on a desk? Would a different angle give it a better look, how bout positioning?
