Violin

By delboy1145
This was taken at a recent 1-2-1 photoshoot were I was playing with lighting and dof. Needless to say I had a very patient model Karen. Although shot in colour it was my intention to convert to black and white to put the focus onto the violin

Nice try with the F8 but needed more punch to get some strings and fingers in focus, even if they would be a bit blurred..I would have another go at this one, and. if you were further away from the subject, f14 might just get some of her face in and the blur that you were after...good try...Wink

There are a couple of things about this that catch my eye...

First, there seem to be some processing marks down the left hand side - some sort of repeating pattern, going across different tonal areas. There's also a dustbunny i nthe area.

The main thing, though, is that the EXIF data records f/8, and the depth of field looks more like f/2.8... Am I right in thinking that the limited depth of field is a result of processing, rather than camerawork?

No the shallow depth of field was as shot, as I was very close to the violin, f8 was set for the studio lights.
I don't know what the banding is it shows after processing but only occasionally and only recently I need to play with it in the near future

Thanks - and good luck with the patterning...
