Focus at different apertures

Focus at different apertures

To show what this exercise is trying to illustrate, I used a subject with a lot of depth choosing a pile of books shot at an acute angle. Focusing on the word ‘light’, I shot the three images, each with a smaller aperture than the previous to create a broader depth-of-field with each image. A Nikon 85mm achromatic lens was used to accentuate the depth-of-field at its narrowest.

Image A
Focal length – 85mm
Shutter speed – 1/160s
Aperture – f/1.8

Image B
Focal length – 85mm
Shutter speed – 1/120s
Aperture – f/5

Image C
Focal length – 85mm
Shutter speed – 1/2s
Aperture – f/16
