I want to start taking more photos but I'm not sure how to adjust my depth of filed. I want to know how to get sharp focusing on the subject and a really blurry background or a really blurry foreground. Advice would be much appreciated?

Thanks

We've been here before.
According to your website Richard, you're offering professional 'portrait packages' and 'wedding photography deals.'
In fact it tells us that you're quite an expert.
How is it then, that you need us to tell you about DoF?

No where on my site does it say I am a professional and I am not offering wedding packages. And as it states on my fb page and website, it says i am a photography student.

It doesn't say it now that you've removed it.

Ten minutes ago your Facebook page was displaying the same advert that you were being asked questions about the last time you showed up on here.
This link from your FB page contains precisely the same information as the ad. that you've removed.

Go back to basics and forget all this professional nonsense where it is so easy to fall flat on your face.

More than enough on the internet that covers basic exposure technique starting by switching your camera to manual.....and leave it there.

Your question is not that convincing.

So why are you advertising yourself as a professional ?

I am now taking bookings for October! If you are planning a fancy dress party then why bot get everyone dressed up for a photoshoot? I am also taking bookings for November/December if you would like to purchase some prints/canvases/gifts for christmas presents. Contact me for more details.

Thomas, be very careful when you post a question on this site. In most cases you will get helpful replies. But there are some people who will make nasty comments. I went to a wedding fair yesterday and was talking to one of the photographers there. I just happened to ask what equipment he used. The comment was are you one of these amateurs who think they can do a good job and undermine the professionals work?

Yes I would have loved to do it for a living, but I haven't got the inclination now. At my age it's far too stressful.

Photography Student?
Why hasn't it been covered on your course?
Strange, when I did my first C&G course basic DoF was one of the first things covered, third week I think.
Followed on later with more in-depth practical work.

Far too many people buy a camera and because everything seems easy by setting the thing to 'Auto', advertise themselves as professioanls. You see here far too often a guy who clearly states on his blog that he is a beginner, empbazones a logo all over the front of a print showing a business name - his name. Totally crazy.

Perhaps a link from here to his FB page might help potential clients decide if he is the right person to help them / take their money Wink

Un-believable advertising yourself as a working photographer and asking a question about one of the most fundamental building blocks of photography is shameful.

Now if you would have asked for help in mastering DOF this thread could have been an interesting read.

I am sure we are all being taken for a ride by a troll here, if not then I weep for your customers or should I say the victims of your fraud.
