Near and Far

This week’s assignment was ‘Near and Far’. This theme was set to test the students’ control of ‘Depth of Field’ whilst being creative! DOF is the amount of distance within an image that is sharp and is controlled by 3 things within photography. Students had to control those 3 techniques to show a sense of distance within the image.

We had some excellent entries in the gallery but there can only be two winners!

The peoples vote goes to Mick Hayes for this moody shot of a rusted boat lying on the marsh. Great job!

My vote goes to Gareth Moss for this shot of a single cockle shell. I like this because it demonstrates a very good control of focus point and depth of field. A perfect response to the theme of Near and Far.
