I've been experimenting with the DOF. Very interesting results. :lol:Here is one of the better shots. Finally went to the table so it wasn't blurry.

Any critique would be appreciated. :G

For such a long exposure as 20 seconds there needs to be no shake

or vibration of the camera to get the background that is further away

in sharp focus, a much higher iso than 100for an indoor shot without

flash is better to reduce the exposure time and so cutting down possibility

of vibration or shake to the camera and worth experimenting with different

stops if you're trying to get ashallow dof (depth of field). orhigh dof.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"not a bad effort........................musket

Thanks for replying Musket. I was starting to wonder if someone would.

I will definitly try a higher ISO. These DOF shots are def. trial and error. :?

The table supports your DOF experiments with its grain pattern about 90 degrees from your subjects/objects. Got some dominoes? It would be fun to line them up on the table and do some more experiments.
