why do people insist on shooting at the lowest possible aperture all the time?
DOF is the "new" cool thing bro
I give up, why?
HDR is old and busted
Lightroom > Aperture
Your av is proof of this.
i do it for several reason,
1. i like to shoot mainly natural light
2. i like to shoot in locations that often don't have the best amount of light
3. my camera is old so high ISOs are nasty
4. shooting people at over 1/30th of a second is usually tough
What kind of camera do you have?
Spotlights the subject
Makes subject appear sharper
Blur out shitty background
Your rant would carry some weight if you posted some shots that you think should not have shallow DOF.
i use it when i dont have a tripod with me and the shutter speed is getting slow
I shoot a lot of outdoor portraits wide open to isolate my subject from the background. for still life it's an "artistic" thing, some shots just look better with a very shallow DoF
At least Simon Cudby knew what he was doing.
I think a lot of people shoot wide open because they can, and the shallow DOF doesnt help the photo at all.
One thing I've told myself and proved myself wrong over and over is... "The lens CAN be wide open, why wouldn't open it up?"
Shallow DOF isn't always the best for most pics like you mentioned. But in low lights, it helps. Also, w/ babies that move a lot since it bumps your shutters higher to 'freeze' their motion.
why shoot f/8 when you're paying for 2.8
werd. I paid for f/2.8 and by god I'm gonna use it on each and every shot!!
it really helps my landscape shots
I'd like to see some shots that sparked the thread.
I think you nailed it on the head.
But jesus people, don't shoot fucking sunny day landscapes at f/2.8
BIGGER IS BETTER!!!!
wait what am i talking about, i'm azn ..
That lens rules maaaaynn ... love the saturation of that bitch!
i know i miss it
Each shot out of that bitch was like a pseudo HDR
post some pics youve taken with you n00b
I always open her up and drop iso to lowest to reduce noise and allow for fastest shutter speed possible.
