"The Learned Monkey"
Nothing too amazing here. DOF can be improved in 1 and especially in 3. Obviously you were bored.
That monkey is a bank right?? My grand parents use to bring me one of those back from hawaii eveey year haha.
Is that the 35mm or 50mm?
First shot was taken with the 35 and the 50 is on the table...the rest were taken with the 50
35, can tell by the tiny hood.
heeey i got two of those books. good reads, very helpful.
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
They are often recommended here, and I just got them... I need to read them obviously
haha thats why i got them to.
Haha yeah it is. My buddy brought it back from Vegas for me a few years ago though actually
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?
