Exercise 2.6

Use a combination of wide apertures, long focal lengths and close viewpoints to take a number of photographs with shallow depth of field. (Remember that smaller f numbers mean wider apertures.) Try to compose the out-of-focus parts of the picture together with the main subject. Add one or two unedited sequences, together with relevant shooting data and an indication of your selects, to your learning log.

Normally I take all my photos with my 18-200mm telephoto lens but I choose to use my 50mm prime lens with a wider aperture which I think gives the photo a more pleasing smoother depth of field.
