POLL: Bokeh and DOF (Face only)
7 months ago

First, apologies on behalf of my model, who was a bit "wooden" in his poses. The good news is, he's able to hold a pose pretty well.

Just curious: which of these do you prefer for Bokeh and/or depth of field?

  • Most of these were taken with a D800, which is why this post is in the D800 forum. Some were also taken with an E-M1.
  • Not trying to prove anything. Just curious and thought we'd have some fun with it.
  • I'm open to critiques for improving my technique, even though this poll is not about that.
  • The bricks background, on the left, is at a 45 degree angle to the plane of the shutter and are about 4 feet behind the subject.  
  • The trees background, on the right, is about 40 feet behind the subject.
  • All photos were shot wide open on the lens that was used.
