Experiments with slow apertures
I´m always glad to see challenges that pushes us to the best of our abilities - but, far too often, the majority of the photos I see are using fast apertures - that indeed produce some very nice images. But what about the order way around?
Most beginners have access only to lenses that range from f.4-5.6 (with the occasional 50mm f.1.8) because of budget issues - I my self, one of them :(. During the holidays, I was reading The Camera , by Ansel Adams and just loved those wonderful images - namely, those with greater depth of view.
Format issues aside - why don´t we try some o it? Monochrome (not necessarily black & white though but yellow, blue, etc...) or Color, filters, tilt and shift... Anything goes! The main idea is to see how far can you go - how deep , if you prefer. How about photos starting from f.8 on, to start.
