Since coming to Mercy I have dreamed of taking photography class, because I've always loved taking pictures. I was never able to fit this class into my schedule, until this year, senior year. With this class, I hoped to expand my knowledge and improve my photography skills, since mine were just the bare minimum.
Depth of Field and Lighting
The smaller photos are two examples of long and short depth of field. The left photo displays long depth of field because the water bottle and pencil bag (the background) are in focus. The right photo shows a short depth of field because only the water bottle and pencil bag (the subject) are in focus, meaning the background is blurred.
When going into photography I had no idea what depth of field even was! I found this topic really interesting and fun to play around with.
