Exercise 2 – Focus with a set aperture

The idea for this exercise was to find a scene with some depth and with each photo focus on something different in the scene, while keeping the aperture set. i used  my canon ef 24-70mm lens and set the aperture at f2.8. an old collection of ceramic dutch town houses came handy at this exercise…the house on which i focused always stood out from the row due to the wide aperture of f 2.8

1. focus on the first house in the row, f2.8

2. focus on the second house in the row, f2.8


3. focus on the fourth house in the row, f2.8

4. focus on the sixth house in the row, f2.8

conclusion : when looking at the photos i do like most the second photo, when i focused on the second house in the row. it stands out nicely, and it is more interesting shot than the first photo with the first house in focus. the third and fourth photos have the beginning of the row too blurred for me, it makes the photo look a bit messy and confused.
