    Pic #1.. depth of field too shallow.

    ...Look.@ #28 just to the right.. THAT.. IS WHERE IT APPEARS, YOU HAVE FOCUSED. (WRONG PLACE, in my opinion)

    #2. much better.. depth of field..!

    #3. I don't know what I am looking at. ? ( I am an electrican w/40 yrs)!

    Pic #1.. see the # 28 ? just to the right.. see how incredibly sharp it is.. now look at the #48

    you want maximum depth of field.. to make an image.. POP!

    sometimes razor sharness is awesome. and sometimes it is KNOT!

    i ALWAYS.. .. shoot for maximum depth of field... I have worked as a journeyman wireman for over 40 yrs.. retired.. I have worked professional photography same amount of time!

    I haven't touched a camera since 1990!.. I have other passions now!

    I make outragous money from my photographs..I had to melt snow for six months!! just to get the water to develop the color film I live with Eskimo's!! majikimaje.com MSIE only!!

    no longer a Noobee? moving up..! good for you!! .. practice practice practice.. !!!

    http://majikimaje.com/drkrm15.jpg yes I have had 15 drk rooms.. !! this was 79 my eskimo photos started in 82 out on the ocean ice!

    In pic #1 I had to use a wide aperture so that I could hand-hold the camera in the low-light levels in that lab. Therefore, the DOF is shallow.

    Pic #3 is a Tesla Coil. It is basically a magnetically coupled resonant circuit capable of producing extremely high voltages. This coil is a 0.5 megavolt (500,000 V) coil. We have a 1 megavolt (yeah thats right... 1 million volts) coil, but it can't be used indoors for safety reasons. Here is the wikipedia entry explaining it in detail.

    Yeah. I used a tripod in photo 3. Photos 1 and 2 were hand-held due to space constraints. (they are on a wall behind a rather large bench, and I couldn't get the angle i wanted without hand-holding the camera)

    EDIT:
    Here is a better picture I took of the effects of the tesla coil:

    Thats why I say as little as $25. A lot of the people in my area aren't going to spend $80-$100 on a photo. They just don't have that much money. I could just do a photo shoot with friends cars from work and see what they are willing to pay. I updated my site anyways :D Thanks, I take that as a serious compliment.

    I seem to have lost the EXIF data on that lift bridge shot. If I remember correctly, I used a small aperture (> f/11) and about 50 seconds.

    And my printer sucks lol. I have my photos printed at wal-mart, unless theyre really nice, then I have them printed at a lab.

    I'll take the little league idea and run with it :D We have a little league team in ashtabula, I'll have to see if they have a photographer.
